Editorial support for trade publishers, university presses, and authors

Fiction

Whether you’re a plotter or a pantser, it’s easy to lose sight of your story after a couple of drafts. A fresh and experienced eye can confirm you’re going in the right direction and provide supportive feedback for crossing the finish line with your book!

Genres: romance (historical, contemporary, and paranormal), fantasy, post-apocalyptic, dystopian, suspense, literary

Nonfiction: It’s hard to distill years of experience and research into a cohesive and accessible work. A fresh and experienced eye can help you structure your content, find the right tone for your audience, and highlight the heart of your message so that readers will find your subject as fascinating as you do!

Subjects: archaeology, anthropology, history, politics, psychology, self-development, health, wellness, nutrition, fitness, sports, yoga, mindfulness

I’ve worked in publishing for fifteen years, starting as a production editor with a book packager, moving to managing editor for an independent publisher, and continuing as a freelance editor and writer. I’m an experienced developmental editor, line editor, and copyeditor.

Put my enthusiasm, experience, and expertise into your next project!
