As a book editor specializing in science fiction, fantasy, and horror, I aim to help your language flow eloquently and to home in on what’s happening beneath the surface of your story so that readers will be hooked from the first sentence. My goal is for you to improve your writing style and become a stronger storyteller. By focusing my commentary so that it's more constructive than critical, I'll zero in on what you’re doing well and then help find ways of making it even better.


Having edited dozens of manuscripts for publishers such as Penguin, Viking, Orbit Books, and PS Publishing, as well as companies like Proofed to Perfection, I’m drawn to current fantasy novels because of the unique twists they put on age-old themes, and I enjoy the vivid new worlds that modern sci-fi envisions.
