I am a reliable and professional Freelance Writer, Ghost Writer, and Developmental Editor.

Freelance Writing -
I write web copy, blog posts, and all kinds of nonfiction writing with an engaging tone. My writing is always delivered ready for publication, free of errors, and on time.

For fiction writing, while I specialize in children's literature, especially middle grade (ages 8-12), chapter books, and picture books, I also write other fiction of various genres.

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 a 6+ 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.

Developmental Editing (Fiction) -
I am a qualified Developmental 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.

As a Developmental Editor, I offer these services:

I can find and help you fix story structure problems such as:
