Profile

Welcome! Let me help you bring out the best in your work. I edit police procedurals, thrillers, apocalyptic fiction, science fiction, historical fiction, and young adult fiction. I also edit academic journal articles, dissertations, academic books textbooks, and theses. As a former prosecutor who has extensive martial arts training, I'm uniquely situated to judge the accuracy of your fight scenes. The subject matter experience I gained in criminal law and child welfare law make me just the editor for your behavioral health, medical, and forensics work. I have published in comparative literature, psychobiology, psychological anthropology, and law, and have prepared panel discussions on healthcare policy in the US, so I am a subject-matter expert in those areas. 

As an editor who is also a lawyer, I bring a nuanced perspective to fiction and nonfiction.

I have an editing certificate from the University of California Berkeley, a JD from William and Mary Law School, and a BA in comparative literature from the University of Virginia.

I work with professionalism and tact. I look forward to working with you.
