Before going public with any important piece of writing, from news release to query letter to book manuscript, wise writers have their work reviewed by a professional editor. As a seasoned writer and editor I wouldn’t think of releasing my latest literary “baby” to my agent or any publication without a read from a trusted wordsmith.

I can do that for you: scrub your copy for everything from typos and brainos to plot, flow and style hiccups. I am fluent in both Chicago and AP style, to meet your unique publishing needs. I have an MFA in writing and have published a range of work, including short stories and the historical novel On Account of Conspicuous Women (New York: St. Martin’s Press, 2008). As a professional editor working from my home office and with writer workshops and retreats, I have established a reputation of providing my clients thoughtful, supportive, focused services tailored to their budgets and needs (see Editorial Services). My clients include Bloomsbury Publishing in New York and Guggenheim Fellow Lucy Daniels

 "To be a writer is to throw away a great deal, 
not to be satisfied,
to type again, and then again and once more,
and over and over."
