I help writers tell and sell their stories
What is the story you’ve always wanted to tell?
Maybe you’ve been writing for years and just can’t seem to get your book done. Maybe you’re done writing your first novel (or your fifth, or your tenth) but don’t know where to go next. Maybe you’ve received round after round of rejections and want to know where you’re missing the mark.
Wherever you are in your writing process, I’d be honored to help you realize your full potential as an author. I specialize in strategic storytelling: from concept development to editing, querying to branding, I will help you apply a practical, business-oriented mentality to the art of writing.
Take a look at the services I offer, then contact me to discuss how we can tell your story together.
I help writers tell and sell their stories. Whether fiction or non-fiction, memoir or novel, I can help you write, edit, and pitch your book.
If you have a finished novel that needs reworking or are starting out from scratch, I will help you craft your best story.
Looking for an objective eye to hone your story? I offer multiple levels of editing depending on your needs and budget.
Navigating the publishing world can be a daunting task, but I can help you find an agent by creating a compelling query letter or nonfiction book proposal.

Testimonials & Featured Clients
"I just wanted to thank you for giving me feedback on the first fifty pages of my work...Your input made my editor and I realize there was too much backstory up front, especially in Chapter One. We are now working on revising the story. Chapter One has now gone from seven pages to one and a half. I didn’t think it was possible, but it works! After this pass, I’m sure I will have something I will be proud to show agents."
