Editing

I have spent the last three years dedicated to learning everything I can about how to tell stories. Whether fiction or non-fiction, every story has a sequence and rhythm that, when unlocked, resonates with readers long after the final page turn.

I am taking an editor’s certification course in the fall which will increase my prices. Now is a great time to take advantage of my kick-off pricing.

    • For Writers & Non-Writers:
