Fiction, role-playing guides, newpapers


Do you need an editor, proofreader, or beta reader who knows the difference between Star Wars, Star Trek, and Stargate? Do you need someone who knows the rhythm and flow of science fiction, fantasy, romance, and mystery? Do you wish your beta reader could pick up on that Skyrim or Fallout reference in your work? If so, please contact me.

Editing science fiction, fantasy, romance, and tabletop role-playing game guides are my favorite things to do. I've edited dozens of romance, science fiction, and fantasy novels. I’ve been lucky to work with indie role-play gaming companies Nine Dragons RPG, Biohazard Games, and Festive Ninja Games. I also proofread and copy edit a local newspaper.

I have a bachelor’s degree in professional writing from Champlain College, a Poynter ACES Certificate in Editing, and a Certificate in Copy Editing from University of California, San Diego.

When I'm not editing or reading, I love to bead and make chainmail jewelry. I own far too many beads and am always scheming to get more. I also love chocolate—especially from Lake Champlain Chocolate.
