Fiction Editing

Nothing is more satisfying than losing yourself in a well-written story! If you’re a writer, you probably know the deep satisfaction when a piece of writing is working and drawing the reader forward. But that doesn’t mean it’s always easy to reach that point!

I’m an editor with over ten years’ experience working with creative writers, and I have my doctorate in English literature and creative writing. I write science fiction, fantasy, literary fiction (realism) and romance, and I’ve had my short stories and my novels published traditionally. I’ve also self-published short fiction under a pen name.

With this experience, I want to help make your writing shine. Whether you’re looking for in-depth feedback about the structure of a novel, or a final copyediting polish, I’d love to help.
