Wendy Cornett – Editor

Memoir and self-empowerment genre editor with more than 20 years at the keyboard known to obsess over the perfect turn of phrase at 2 a.m.!


Editing content is so much more than mechanics and technical accuracy. It's about helping writers share their stories in ways that move and form authentic connections with readers. My clients' voices, intentions, and goals come first -- always. This is your story to tell, and I'm here to help you tell it in the best way possible.

I'm open-minded and sensitive, with a special place in my heart for helping survivors of addiction, abuse, or neglect share their difficult stories.

Work experience


Oct, 1999 — Present

Embarking upon an independent career opened doors for me that I never knew existed! For years I had the immense pleasure of profiling runners in the Boston Marathon for a global company, and I'm a jogger today because of that job. I've met a former Olympic athlete and worked for several global companies. But once I started book editing, I found my true home, and it's my favorite place to be.

Aug, 1993 — Oct, 1999 (about 6 years)
