My specialty is developmental/substantive editing, from top to bottom. Every book is different, and I take pride in my ability to explain and clarify the bumps and bruises I find. I have a B.A. in Linguistics and a M.F.A. in Creative Writing, as well as nearly a decade of editorial and critique experience.
I'm available for projects large and small - from short stories to epic poems. I also offer copy editing and manuscript evaluations, which provide a smaller report of the health of your manuscript and highlight any larger issues that may prevent you from getting an agent or publication contract.
I don't need a query from you, just a conversation. I work with many genres, including all sorts of general, literary, and commercial fiction, as well as middle-grade and nonfiction/memoir. See the full list below, and feel free to reach out if you have something off-the-wall that doesn't quite fit into a genre. My favorite works are ones that walk the line between odd and normal, fitting into the cracks everyone forgets about. Bring me your observant, intuitive, honest, genuine, and perhaps a little weird.
