nonfiction books, developmental editing, content editing, substantive editing, copy editing


I specialize in holistic edits and coaching for book-length nonfiction. I offer comprehensive services based on analysis of your goals, your message, and your audience. No matter your experience level as an author or your publication aims, I can partner with you to make sure your book conveys your expertise to your desired audience.

Whether your book is how-to, self-help, reference, or memoir, I can help it connect with readers. Whether you are a business owner, spiritual thinker, family historian, or nonprofit leader, I can help you communicate to your audience.

I’ve been editing for more than 15 years—as a freelancer since 2011. I love the freedom and flexibility my freelance career provides. These elements allow me to collaborate with each client to tailor my services to their needs. Before freelancing, I spent more than 3 years as an associate editor for Writer’s Digest Books. My work there gave me a unique window into the inner workings of the publishing world and the writing life.
