My editing helps authors develop polished writing in areas including personal finance, self-help, literary fiction, science fiction, fantasy, and poetry. I have worked in book publishing for more than twelve years, providing a full line of editing services for both traditional publishers and self-publishers alike.

I am experienced in developing books from manuscript to finished product. I am familiar with book-length fiction, non-fiction, and poetry projects, including novels, short story collections, and poetry collections, but I also work on smaller projects such as individual stories, chapters, reports, articles, and poems. 

I am also trained in business and marketing communications and experienced in producing marketing and publicity content for the book publishing industry. This includes query letters, book proposals, synopses, back cover copy, press releases, and social media posts. 

I have an eye for detail while maintaining an understanding of the overall scope of each project. My wide variety of interests allows me to take on every assignment with enthusiasm and dedication.
