I believe anyone can write a novel.

With week-by-week effort and regular feedback, you can write a novel that you can be proud of.

I can help you with that. I will work with you evaluate your story to tell you if your story works, pinpoint specific problems, and recommend fixes that make sense. I have edited worldview maturation, sci-fi, fantasy, and non-fiction stories and am always eager to read something new.

I am a Certified Story Grid Editor and edit using Story Grid tools. Developed by an editor with 25+ years editing experience, I’ve found that Story Grid’s tools and method can dramatically improve your writing and give you structure for your everyday writing work. Check out the Story Grid website and book to learn more.
