Who I Am As an Editor
I am a U.S. editor, and I use the Chicago Manual of Style.
I have many years experience as a writer, editor, and critiquer, and currently write back-cover blurbs for Limitless Publishing. I’ve edited and critiqued pretty much every genre, except for picture books, chapter books, and spiritual books. I write adult, new adult, and YA age categories; my currently published books are in the contemporary, romantic suspense, and magical realism genres, but I have also written fantasy, humor, mystery, and memoir.
I have myself written five successful queries, which have all garnered multiple full manuscript requests. I’ve written dozens of successful Twitter pitches. I’ve judged and critiqued in Query Combat, Son of a Pitch, and am currently mentoring in Nightmare on Query Street. I also have many satisfied and successful editing clients. I provide references upon request.
Most of all, I love my job! Editing is fun, and I love getting a chance to read your stories.
I provide a full range of editing services:
