A Baltimore-area writer and editor with almost twenty years of experience in writing, editing, and publishing, I work with bestselling authors, independent authors, and emerging writers to improve structure, characterization, plot, dialogue, narrative, grammar, and diction. Although I edit multiple genres and styles, including short fiction, I specialize in developmental editing, line editing, and copyediting of full-length fiction (literary, sci-fi/fantasy, YA/NA, thriller, and contemporary), creative nonfiction, and memoir. I also offer private coaching sessions to select clients in the DC/Baltimore area.
As co-executive of the Editorial Freelancers Association and an active member of ACES: The Society for Editing, I am committed to excellence and professionalism in the industry. My goal as an editor is to promote strong writing and good storytelling by helping you achieve quality and consistency in your manuscript, while preserving the integrity of your unique voice and style.
