Your gateway to a better story

Whether you're a published author or a beginner, you can rely on me to:

  • Evaluate your story's organization and plot coherency.

  • Give you a “fix list” of ways to make it better.

  • Strengthen your unique writing voice.

  • Encourage you to view your story through your readers’ eyes.

  • Suggest ways to overcome problems.

  • Edit your sentences, improve your dialogue, fix your punctuation, query any doubtful choices, point out possible errors, and generally tidy up your text.

  • Teach you to be a “self-correcting” writer.

  • Help you to approach publishers or agents.

With my help, you can create the book you've always wanted to write.

​Let's work together to make it as good as it can be!

I act as your personal coach, mentor, and cheerleader

I've spent over 20 years giving authors hands-on advice and guidance— no matter what genre of fiction you write:

romance  *  mystery, detective, crime, thriller  *  adventure
historical  *  science fiction  *  fantasy  *  young adult  *  children's story


novel, book, editor, fiction, editing, story-telling, self-publish, proofread, manuscript evaluation, writing, coach, mentor, guidance
