At this time, I am not taking new editing clients.

If you have a question, please use the CONTACT form under that tab. If you have a manuscript for a  mystery, suspense, thriller, or crime story and would like a recommendation for an independent editor, again, please use the CONTACT form. I’d be happy to pass along a name or two.

I have been fortunate to work with both established and aspiring authors, in short story collections via a professional organization or one-on-one with writers on individual projects. I have edited work by authors who have been awarded Pushcart Prizes and Emmy Awards; Agatha, Edgar, Anthony, Daphne, McAvity, Silver Falchion, and Mary Higgins Clark Awards; the National Independent Excellence and the Independent Book Publisher Awards; the William F. Deek Malice Domestic Grant as well as state grants and regional fellowships/residencies at Breadloaf, the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, the Millay Colony, and Ragdale.

It’s been a great pleasure to build a business that took off with the trust and support from other writers. I get a thrill whenever I see a book that may not bear my name, but I had a role in ushering onto the shelf. I sincerely thank every author who sent a story to me. It’s been a great way to make a living.
