Verified identity


I'm a multi-published author both traditionally and independently. I'm also a freelance writer and editor.
As an editor and coach, I work in the following genres: Romance, Women's Fiction, Literary Fiction, Magical Realism/Dystopian, and Historical Fiction. I provide anything from light copyediting (grammatical help) to full developmental editing. As a coach, I can get you from story idea to ready to publish/find an agent and everything in between.
Several authors have already used my services as both an editor and a book coach and I would love to reach more clientele.
Bringing books to life is my passion. References available upon request.
