fiction, non-fiction, news, lifestyle
On my business card, I included a saying that thrilled me when I read it, because it’s the essence of what I do: “You write to communicate to the hearts and minds of others what's burning inside you. And we edit to let the fire show through the smoke.” Simply beautiful. I’ve worked on full-length fiction in all literary genres, as well as thousands of news and lifestyle articles. My work experience is diverse because I'm not afraid to delve into new territory, and I'm curious about everything. I'm a real fixer, taking comfort in the rules laid out in a standard style guide or dictionary, yet I'm flexible enough to get behind a serial comma or kick it to the curb. I believe in the importance of humor, but I take my work very seriously; it's my passion. I have the utmost respect for writers and treat every project with care. There's only one thing more satisfying than digging into a good story—being part of a team that makes it even better.
