The act of writing fiction isn't one dimensional,
and your editor's approach shouldn't be either.

I use all of my tools to work with you to transform your manuscript
from its current state into its ideal one.

I ask questions. I read and analyze. I think. I feel. I use my intuition.
I listen to my mind, my heart, and my gut. 

I listen to you.

I transform my holistic understanding of your book into a straightforward plan,
creating a map for the work that lies ahead of you.

You don't have to wonder if you're wasting your time.
You don't have to worry about keeping track of every last detail.
You don't have to worry that no one's got your back.

All you have to do is write your best book.

Our societal approach to writers and writing isn't always supportive.
I want to change that. 

Working intimately with nearly two hundred first-time writers
has allowed me to see the writing process in a way others cannot.

Our cultural expectations, the writing industry, and the way we treat creatives
makes the act of finding and walking the writer's path
more difficult and precarious than it already is.

I know it doesn't have to be this way.
I'm working to change things, starting with Drafting Out Loud.

Since 2011, I've completed nearly 500 editorial passes.
From deep developmental edits to proofreads; I've seen it all.

I know that no two books are the same,
and yet I also know many of the common pitfalls of the first-time author.
I can help you discern between the two.

I can help you understand and apply the elements of fiction.
I can help you understand what's working, what's not, and how to fix it.
I can help you become a better writer.

My experience + your book = magic.
