Service Description

I bring to potential clients fifteen years of experience in the ever-changing publishing industry, having worked with my agent and senior editors at Dorchester Publishing and The Wild Rose Press and established a successful freelance business. I served Romance Writers of America at three local chapter levels as a board member and one national level as a newsletter editor.

My publications include a short story in an anthology, LOVE, TEXAS STYLE, published by The Wild Rose Press in 2007, and a recent ghostwritten contemporary romance novel for an innovative start-up company publishing interactive novels in iBook format.

My fiction has been nominated twice for Romance Writers of America's prestigious Golden Heart Award, the highest honor for unpublished manuscripts in the romance industry. Additional awards include first place honors in the 2008 Great Expectations Contest and finalist honors in the following:

2011 The Sandy Contest
2010 Chase the Dream Contest
2010 Bump in the Night Flash Fiction
2007 Silver Nugget Contest
2006 Southern Heat Contest

In addition to judging dozens of fiction contests for the past decade, I have studied under and been mentored by some of the most well-respected writing instructors in the industry: Candace Havens, Margie Lawson, Allison Brennan, CJ Lyons, Robin Perini. I write strong characters, sharp dialogue, multi-layered plots and timeless themes.

Clients may expect diligent attention to the craft, rewriting until the client is satisfied...
