I am a reliable and professional freelance editor, writer, and ghost writer. While I work on various kinds of projects, my specialty is children's fiction and nonfiction.
EDITING (fiction and nonfiction):
I am a qualified editor with a B.A. in English language and literature. I have taught literature and creative writing, and I understand the art of crafting a well-written story.
I know from experience writing a book is hard work! It's frustrating when something isn't working, but you're unclear how to fix it.
As an editor, I offer these services:
- Developmental Editing
- Editing (line edits)
For fiction projects, I can find and help you fix story-structure problems such as:
- Plot holes
- Under-developed or inconsistent characters
- Pacing issues
- Inconsistent tone/style
- Poor dialogue
- Info dumps
- Grammar issues and errors
For nonfiction projects, I'm great at fixing problems such as:
- Inconsistent tone and style
- Incorrect facts
- Poor structure
- Grammar issues and mistakes
I always provide thorough feedback that is constructive, helpful, and complete with ideas for how to revise and move forward with the project.
I offer the following freelance writing services:
- nonfiction books
- short stories
- picture books
- chapter books
I write all kinds of nonfiction writing. I believe nonfiction writing should be engaging and focus on the correct tone and style for the intended audience. My writing is always delivered ready for publication, free of error, and on time.
I love working on nonfiction projects for kids! I enjoy the challenge of creating content that is fun and engaging while also staying factual and packed with information.
I am also available to write fiction in a variety of genres, with a specialty in children's literature. I predominately write middle grade (ages 8-12), chapter books, and picture books.
Let me help you write and shape the story you long to put into the world. I believe in the power of stories, and I will listen to your ideas, your voice, your thoughts and help them emerge onto the page as a captivating story.
As a Ghostwriter, I offer these services:
- Ghostwriting (taking your idea (nonfiction or fiction) and turning it into a polished book or short story that you can self-publish under your own name)
- Ghostwriting from an outline
- Developmental Editing
I'm a 7+ year member of SCBWI (the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators), and I hold a B.A. in English language and literature from Pepperdine University. I am currently in the revision process of a middle grade novel.
I am always happy to listen to client ideas and provide a 1-2 page sample of my work at no charge.
I would love the opportunity to help you shape your project into a compelling and captivating book that readers will love.
