Thanks, also, to my agent, Jill Marsal, as well as to my patient editors, Chris Werner and Tiffany Yates Martin, who take the lumps of coal I turn in and help me turn them into diamonds. In this case, their insight helped me stay on track with the story I wanted to tell.
Your Voice. Your Vision.
Writing is a solitary process. When you’re writing your first draft—or second, or fifteenth—often you have only your own impressions of the work. Like standing in the lobby of a high-rise building, you can’t see the whole structure unless you step outside and get some perspective.
Helping authors see their story with that objective distance and more deeply understand how to make it as effective, engaging, and compelling as it can be is my life’s work and my passion. Telling a story is about your voice; a good edit should enhance it, not alter it. Let me help you find the best version of your vision, fulfilling your creative intention and making sure the story in your head is the one on the page, and that your prose is as polished as your story.
Feel free to look around my site and explore; I’m glad you’re here.
