By providing both rigorous analysis and support for your creative process, I can help you to realize the full potential of your story.
As a substantive and story editor, I work with both established and emerging authors, analyzing the narrative structure of their manuscripts—looking at elements such as plot, character, and theme.
I work on novels, non-fiction books, short fiction, screenplays, and children's literature.
I honour the trust that writers place in me and I'm gratified by their feedback:
"I'm overwhelmed by how carefully you read the novel ... and by how right you are about absolutely everything." - Edeet Ravel, award-winning author of the Pauline series.
