I love helping pre-published and established writers to share their stories with the world!
From copyediting and line editing to developmental editing and mentoring, I will give you top-notch service, dedication, and guidance.
I work on novels, non-fiction manuscripts, short stories, novellas, essays, magazine and newspaper articles. For fiction and non-fiction projects, I work on middle grade through adult, and I specialize in adult fiction and non-fiction.
I'll work in any genre, but especially love speculative fiction (science fiction, horror, and fantasy) and crime, mystery, thriller, and suspense. I will also work with you to create a fantastic submission package, from your query letter and synopsis to your first pages and your agent and editor strategy.
I also have a human resources and learning and development background, and love to work on corporate communications, instructional design, classroom and online delivery, and assessment and evaluation projects.
You're the client. You're the one doing the hard work, and you shouldn't have to spend your time mining through complicated proposals to see if you can afford a freelance writer and editor.
My pricing is simple: I charge $40 an hour for my time, I only count time where I am actively editing or writing, and I'll give you a total project price before we start, based on a fair estimated number of hours. If I take fewer hours, you'll pay less, and you'll never pay more than that estimated project price no matter how long I take!
I love writing, I love editing, and I love helping writers. Feel free to contact me with any questions, or ask for a sample edit. I look forward to working with you!
