I specialize in developmental editing of books, articles, essays, and online content.
As a developmental editor, I help you improve your project by refining your words, organizing your message, and clarifying your voice.
I’ve worked in the article, content, and book market for over 25 years and have a keen eye for what works. In addition to working with individual clients, I edit for Forbes and Lucid House Publishing.
I can read a project and see the potential and underlying message of a book, article, essay, or post and help you bring it fully to light. Having another set of eyes read your work can pick up inconsistencies, key in on how to better organize information, and locate places where additional details and explanation can be useful. For fiction, it’s helpful to have an experienced editor examine pacing, flow, and character development so that your story can shine. I also am an expert at honing word choice and adjusting punctuation and grammar.
I work closely with my authors and clients and am committed to helping them bring their projects to successful completion. I have worked on a variety of proposals and manuscripts for Hay House submission and one of my clients won the Hay House Workshop Grand Prize and another won Honorable Mention. In addition to self-help, I love to work on fiction, memoir, children’s books, non-fiction, articles, and essays. I work with individual authors as well as a few select agents and publishing houses, including Lucid House and KN Literary. I edited As the Sycamore Grows by Jennie Helderman for Lucid House which was named as a Kirkus Reviews Best Indie Books of 2023.
