No one ever fell in love with a book because of all of its perfectly placed commas or the author’s impeccable grammar. It’s not the mechanics of writing that keep readers up late for just one more chapter. It’s the deliciousness of the story.

And while no good book is made with the exact same recipe as another, the basic ingredients are the same: a compelling plot combined with memorable characters and that unique flavor each author brings to their writing.

If you’re looking for an editor, and you’re ready to bake up the best possible version of your story, I'd love to work with you.

- My mission as an editor is to nurture the creative spirit of every writer I work with. I promise to give you honest, constructive, supportive, and actionable feedback. -
