I have always been fascinated by the duality of the writer’s life. Writing is the ultimate solitary task, and yet writers write to share their stories with others. Developmental editing is the process by which the internal, solitary task of writing becomes sharp, focused communication with the world.
For a writer, developmental editing should challenge your assumptions about storytelling, help you see the strengths in your work, the weaknesses that are holding you back, and understand how other people may interpret what you’ve written.
I specialize in mysteries, thrillers, suspense, crime, and sci-fi. I also have experience working in memoir, book club/women’s fiction, fantasy, general commercial fiction, and historical.
My goal is to help you tell your story, and since that can be a very personal process, you can find more about me here
