editorial services

I offer a variety of editorial services for writers of middle grade and young adult novels, including:

In my editorial assessments and developmental/substantive edits, I will approach your work with an eye for craft. Depending on your choice of service, I may be looking at big-picture issues and deep level restructuring or performing an in-depth analysis of your manuscript. After reading your manuscript, I will provide you with a thorough editorial letter that addresses your work. I am happy to schedule follow-up meetings to discuss my feedback. My goal is to make your path to revision straightforward and purposeful. 

I also edit picture books. Find out more information about my picture book editing services

I hold a BA in English Literature from UC Berkeley and an MFA in Creative Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts. As an experienced writing teacher, fiction writer, editor, and marketing copywriter, I have helped numerous writers refine their work on their way to publication. Whether you have a rough draft that needs more direction, or a polished draft in need of a final opinion, I would love to help you meet your goal.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me to discuss your project.
