A professional editor once told me that writing was “the hardest fun you’ll ever have.”

I believe that too. Writing should be fun even though it’s hard work. But sometimes, you get so tangled up in the story you’re trying to create that it starts feeling like you’re stuck in one of those hedge mazes that’s going to take all night to get out of.

And that’s no fun at all.

That’s where I come in.  I help writers who are lost in their own stories and can’t find their way out of their draft to get un-lost and un-confused so they can FINISH THEIR NOVEL.

I also provide professional beta reading and editing services to help you turn a good story into a great one that readers can’t put down.

Who I Am

I am an indie author, freelancer, and editor who believes strongly that writers should help one another.

I began experimenting with independent publishing in the early 2000s and learned a lot about it the hard way, through making expensive mistakes due to lack of experience and difficulty figuring out when to trust my own vision and when to listen to others’ opinions.

Today, I not only offer feedback on young adult authors’ works-in-progress, but also help you build your self-confidence as an author. I’ll tell you what’s not working — but I’ll also make sure you know what IS so that you can build on the skills you already have and turn a GOOD story into a GREAT one that readers won’t be able to put down!
