Editorial Director of CamCat Publishing. Writing Coach. Public Speaker. Translator. That’s me.
Writers come to me for an intelligent and strong, yet sensitive and tactful editorial workout. My work is cooperative and includes continuous communication during and after the editing process. This is true for my work as Editorial Director at CamCat Publishing, a house for genre fiction, and for my work as independent consultant at withpenandpaper LLC. I offer personalized editorial services to experienced writers and new talent, to those who have found representation already and those who haven’t.
As your editor, it is my pleasure and my duty to help you unlock the potential of your manuscript. I will guide you through the development and revision process. I focus on concept, story, and style to help you sharpen your vision, refine your voice, and polish your work. I see and service the big picture, yet while I'm at it, I make sure that every comma is in the right place. We'll discuss what works, what doesn't, what needs to be improved, changed, added, cut or shortened, and why. And we will look for ways to incorporate my editorial suggestions into the original vision of your work.
At CamCat Publishing, I am looking for manuscripts in the following genres: suspense, sci-fi/adventure, romance.
