Knowledgeable Expertise in Making Stories Shine
Editing fiction is a passion of mine. There is really no other place that I can give free reign to my fascination with watching Story emerge from a bunch of squiggles on the page. My professional skill set has developed over several decades. I spent nearly ten years freelancing as an editor and writer for major publishing houses, another decade and then some teaching writing strategies and skills to writers from kindergarten through college. I've sailed around the world twice, studied history, mythology, magic, science, philosophy and folk stories with an eye towards crafting great stories. I've got a couple of novels under my belt, and a few award winning stories.
In the end, though, it is all about guiding you, the writer, as you prepare your story to bridge the gap between manuscript and publication. My edits are guaranteed to be insightful, accurate and clearly presented. Comments offer strategies, guidelines and resources for making improvements. Copy edits are clearly explained, and suggestions focus on maintaining the voice and integrity that you have crafted into the story. Whether you are looking for a simple manuscript evaluation, a substantive edit, copy editing or full developmental edit, exceptional editing is here, ready and waiting at a reasonable price.
