For Writers

Creative solutions to practical problems.

It’s not easy being a writer. It’s hard to get the people in your life to take your writing seriously. You have to fight to carve out time to work on your craft (There’s always that guy at some party who says, “If I had a weekend I could write a novel.” Um, right.). And then, who can you trust to give you honest feedback to take your work to the next level without changing your voice or your story?

I’ve sat on both sides of the publishing desk. I get it. I know how hard it is to get where you are. And I know what publishers are thinking about your book. And I can teach you what you need to know to reach your writing goals. In fact, that’s the first thing I’m going to ask you about. I love helping people stretch out of their comfort zones and reach their goals.

At heart, I’m a teacher. I don’t just edit your work, I help you grow your craft. You understand what I am doing and why so you can apply this to your other works.

Have a question? I’m available to help.

While I have options for every budget, I provide the best value to serious writers ready to get their work published, traditional or indie.
