Over twenty years of experience editing academic and fiction novels. With a keen eye for detail and an impeccable work ethic, I aim to help you shape your work. I’m your coach, guide, and cheerleader. Assisting authors and writers is my driving passion.

As a writing instructor at the college level for seventeen years, I edited thousands of stories and essays. I segued into a fiction editor career in 2014 as a copyeditor. Since then, I have moved into an editor role with The Wild Rose Press. As a freelance editor, my duties range from proofreader to developmental editor.

As an editor both freelance and with The Wild Rose Press, I have worked with excellent authors. Hanna Park won the Stilleto Award for her first novel, Finding Tiegan. Sadira Stone was a finalist for the same award in 2019 for her second novel, A Runaway Love Story. Exit Strategy, a women’s fiction novel, written by Lainey Cameron has won over a dozen awards, several Gold Winner Awards, a Book Excellence Award, and is a #1 Bestseller and Award Winner on Amazon. 2022 Top Shelf Book Awards winner in Women’s Fiction and honorable mention in General Fiction. Beautifully Damaged by Laura Pavlov has sold over eighteen hundred copies. And Book two, Beautifully Flawed has sold over eight hundred. Laura’s books are consistently on Amazon’s top 50 bestseller list.

As a copy-editor and proofreader for The Wild Rose Press and a few other small online publishing houses, I have edited, copy-edited, and proofed well over 500 novels since 2014. The Wild Rose Press has won the Best Romance Publisher award twelve years in a row. I have proofread well-known authors like Marie Tuhart and award-winning author, Desiree Holt. It’s been an honor to proofread some of her titles. Desiree Holt has published over 200 novels and is a USA Today best-selling author. Other awards include an Epic E-Book Award, an Authors After Dark Author of the Year, and the Winner of the Holt Medallion.

It is inspiring, to assist authors with their stories, keeping their style, yet polishing manuscripts to make them shine.

As you can see, my editing experience is diverse. My work ethic is impeccable. I am organized and punctual. I push myself to meet and exceed deadlines while maintaining the high standards I set for myself. Whatever your needs are, I strive to develop the highest quality for my clients. Thank you for stopping by. It will be my pleasure to assist you in making your story, whatever it is, market worthy.
