I applaud all your hard work spent writing a book. I know it can be nerve-wracking to have someone else critique your work, so while I will be honest, I strive to encourage you along the way, acting as a beacon guiding your editing journey.
And since stories have the ability to transform lives, you too are a beacon, sharing your story with the world. I want to ensure that nothing stands in the way of that story by helping you strengthen your characters and plot and ensuring appropriate pacing. I can help you avoid author pitfalls like head-hopping and info-dumping and reduce your errors so your readers stay connected to the story.
Let’s build a partnership to make your book the best it can be in the time allotted.

YA Fantasy and Dystopian novels are my favorite to read, so I am hoping to start working with this genre.
