I'm a professional book and screenplay editor with over twenty years experience in publishing and feature film/television development. As a patient, understanding and thoughtful editor, I'll work closely with you to get your novel, memoir or screenplay into its best shape whether you submit to literary or film agents, editors at publishing houses, film producers or go the self-publishing route.
My specialties include: commercial fiction, thrillers, mysteries, women's fiction, literary fiction, historical fiction, memoir, young adult and screenplays of all kinds. I offer thorough, constructive critiques, developmental editing, line editing, advice on the material's commercial potential, help with your query letter as well as agent referrals when appropriate. Some writers have agents in place but their manuscripts are getting rejected and they don't know why. Others are in search of an agent and are getting close but need help. And first time authors are not sure how to maneuver through the challenging and changing world of publishing. I can help. My authors have gone on to get agents and publish with mainstream houses and small independent presses while others are deciding to self-publish.
