As well as being a writer, I am a freelance editor (, offering copy editing for a wide range of fiction and memoir and developmental editing for picture books, chapter books, and middle grade novels.

Having experienced insightful and inspiring editing assistance for my own manuscripts, I want to provide the same encouragement to my clients. The joy of editing for me is helping another writer learn and grow and make his/her/their manuscript shine. All I learn in honing my own writing makes me a better editor. 

I love to help my editing clients learn more about the craft of writing, as well. Tied to that is my passion for connecting people with the right resources. I often suggest resources to clients during the editing process.

I try to do all this with gentleness, with humor, and with a spirit of caring for the person and his/her manuscript ~ editing with a keen eye and an understanding heart.
