Passionate About Inspiring Others

One way I enjoy encouraging other writers is by offering professional editing services. If you have a picture book, chapter book, or middle grade novel that you want other eyes on, I'd be happy to be those eyes.

Basic editing services include a thorough, close reading of a manuscript with notes made in margins. More extensive services include line edits, character and plot arc notes, and a detailed letter indicating what works and what needs adjustment.
