“If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.”

Toni Morrison

Every author I’ve ever worked with has had that moment—that spark that gives birth to a story. A book of wisdom. A retelling of hardship. A book.

These authors cultivate their tales, pouring themselves into their work until it’s complete—a manuscript they can hold in their hands. But from the moment the pen touches paper, the fingers touch the keyboard, an enormous task lies before them. There are characters to build, a plot to construct, grammar to fix. It can be daunting!

But no worries! Editors are here to help. As a professional editor, I’ve been working with authors for years to perfect their stories. This includes editing for grammar, sentence structure, plot development, character intentionality and growth—you name it! And I’d love to help you, too.

As your editor, I’ll be right by your side as you develop your masterpiece. I’ll be there to assist at any stage of the process, whether it be helping you build your story from the bottom up or providing a final proofread before you whisk it off for the publishing world to see. I’m ready to embark on this adventure with you, as an editor, brain-stormer, cheerleader, and encourager.

My experience includes three years of working with authors in copy, line, and developmental editing. Along the way, I’ve worked on almost every genre and am particularly experienced in helping my clients refine and develop their books’ plots. I’m proficient in Chicago Manual of Style, APA, AP, and MLA styles. Whether you’re looking to publish that first fantasy novel or finish up your doctoral dissertation, I’m your editor!
