Hello!

I'm the author of six novels with HarperCollins and Simon & Schuster, a developmental editor, and a fabulous ghostwriter of all genres. My books have earned the IRA's Teen's Choice Award, as well as ALA Best Paperbacks award. I have a talent for bringing great characterization to the page and for whipping revisions into publishable novels.

Service Description

I'm available for manuscript enhancements (partial ghostwriting or "boost edits"), developmental editing, line editing, critiques, and full ghostwriting. I love reading anything contemporary, paranormal, mystery, sci-fi, fantasy, historical fiction, or romance, and I can write any genre just as well--anything with a compelling main character who draws me in. I'm not interested in didactic books for teens or ones with agenda-driven political commentary. When I read your manuscript, I will provide notes on characterization, plot, pacing, flow, and anything that seems off-balance. If I'm ghostwriting, I will take your outline and existing chapters and turn them into your unique vision in story form. Look forward to hearing from you!
