You've written a first draft. That's huge.

Give yourself a pat on the back.

Now it's time to edit and make it all pretty.

Professional editing ensures that your book is as brilliant as you are. 

Your book represents you and what you care most about sharing with the world. I help you figure out how to put the right words in the right place so your book sounds and feels like Who You Are and What You Really Want to Say.

Does this sound like you?


  • You need an editor, but don't know where to begin.

  • A less than fabulous book is not an option.

  • You've taken your book as far as you can on your own.

  • You're not sure if your book is "ready."

  • You want more trusted feedback.


Let's get that handled now, shall we?
