I simply love words, the music of language, and the art of written expression. Not only do I strive for excellence in my own writing, but I bring decades of writing experience to help you achieve quality in yours.

Throughout my twenty-six-year writing career, I have created content for websites and magazines and won contests with my poetry and short stories. My debut novel A Peculiar Curiosity will be published in October of 2018.

I write in the fiction genres of gothic horror, historical fiction, magical realism, paranormal, and women’s fiction, and I have written on a variety of non-fiction topics including finance, pets, arts and crafts, home improvements, household tips, health and wellness, and diet and exercise.

I’ve been editing works for clients for over five years and hold an editing certificate from Simon Fraser University. My clients’ genres have included historical fiction, erotica, horror, action/adventure, mystery, science fiction, romance, women’s, and contemporary fiction.

In addition to fiction editing, I have years of experience with editing and writing business copy, promo materials, synopsis, back cover blurbs, bios, and queries.

I offer:

  • full manuscript editing, including content editing, stylistic editing, copyediting, and final proofreading
  • manuscript assessment
  • targeted author coaching, including help with plot development, dialogue, character arcs, tension, and conflict
  • query, synopsis, back cover blurb, and bio writing/editing
  • business copywriting and copy editing

I am also a member of the Horror Writers Association.
