    Almost 300 lifetime projects! "I can't believe there was ever a time when I thought editors were optional. You and what you've done to the manuscript is AMAZING. Your services are priceless and essential. Thank you thank you thank you!" ~ Carrie Fenn, YA author. I work each and every job to ensure all my clients feel this way. As a full-time freelance editor, I've been blessed to work with many amazing clients, some of whom return to me regularly with additional projects. I'm the principal editor for Crescendo Publishing as well as the Liberty Fund. I'm a former English teacher and newspaper reporter / editor, both of which continue to aid and inform my freelance projects. In my spare time, I write fiction. In 2014 I published my YA novel, The Dragon's Daughter and have just finished the first draft of my fourth novel, a ghost story set in the mountains of Tennessee.

    If you have the idea, I got the words for you. If you need fresh ideas I got no words to explain out my credentials. I have been an ardent learner of the English language since a tender age. In the past few years, I have been toying with its application in diverse avenues. This has made me write on a pod of varied genres. Hire me if it is a coalescence of commitment, precision, collaboration, penchant, conformity and priority you are looking for.
