If you’re like most writers, you can tell when there's a problem with your manuscript. Sometimes you can't put your finger on what it is, or you have a pretty good idea but don't know the best way to fix it. That's where I come in.
As a developmental editor for almost two decades, I've helped many clients step back and see the big picture. Did you stretch suspension of disbelief so far it snapped? Are your characters unlikable or—even worse—dull? Aren't sure how to weave in backstory without the dreaded info dump? I’ll help you fix the fundamentals to ensure your readers keep turning the pages.
I've been the editor for a well-known literary agent, as well as a ghostwriter with one of the premier full-service agencies in New York. I love helping writers surpass obstacles that once seemed overwhelming. Tell me your story and I’ll help you achieve your goals and realize your dreams.
The geek of EnglishGeek Editing, I’ll bring an obsessive attention to detail to copyediting your work. English is full of fun and messy elements that can gum up your story. It's my job to know the rules—and when it's okay to break them.
I have a master of arts degree in English, and have read extensively across genres. Through experience I know when to make changes, when to query, and when to leave the language alone. I’ll work with you to build your book up, not tear it down. Your time is important to me, and once we agree on a deadline, you can rest assured I’ll meet it.
It's gratifying to see writing I've edited go on to be published, both in print and online. You have only one chance to impress a publisher or reader with your story. Let me help you create a clean, polished, and exciting manuscript so you can send your best work out into the world.
