I’m here to help.

Breaking into the writing scene can be intimidating, isolating, and full of rejection. It’s hard not to second guess yourself, your skills, and even your story. Sometimes all you need is someone to read your book or query over and give reassurance. What you wrote is great. But sometimes, you need help — a nudge in the right editing direction. Whether that’s someone to point out plot holes or someone to help you find better ways to pitch your book, I’m here for you.

Years of experience in publishing, including shortly running my own press, has made me realize time and time again what I love doing the most is helping writers grow, reach their goals, make their dreams come true.
