Writing is a very vulnerable process.

I get that. It was Ernest Hemingway who said, “There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.

Opening your heart and your mind for the world to see is nerve-wracking. I’ve been writing for over ten years—mostly for fun—and I’m still terrified every time I share what I write with someone else, even if it’s my husband or my best friend.

For many of us, our stories are our babies.

I get that, too.

As an editor, I care about your “baby.” I care about your vision for your writing and I want to get to know you, the writer behind the story. I laugh with you, I cry with you, and I hold your hand while we’re working together to make your unique voice shine.

I cherish the editor and writer relationship. You’re sharing something really important and special with me and I am grateful for every opportunity I get to nourish this immensely powerful opportunity I get to read and help with others’ writing.

I would love the chance to help you polish your writing so your story connects with and inspires your readers.
