Write the book you want to read.

Most of us write alone, but the process of polishing, perfecting and ultimately publishing a novel is a collaborative effort. As an editor, writer, and teacher of children’s fiction, I sit on both sides of the desk. In my experience, good editing can make the difference between a manuscript that's accepted or rejected. Don't submit your manuscript to an agent or editor before it's ready.


With an MFA in creative writing and years of editing experience, I bring critical analytical skills, an extensive knowledge of craft and a passion for storytelling to my role as mentor and consultant to other writers.

Whether you’re working on a short story, chapter book, middle grade or young adult novel, I can help you make your book the best it can be.

“So many things are possible just as long as you don't know they're impossible.”
—Norton Juster in The Phantom Tollbooth
