I am 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 award 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.   .

My relationship with my clients is a private one. I don’t discuss manuscripts or my client list without permission. Many of my clients come through word of mouth or mutual inclusion in a professional organization such as Sisters in Crime, Pennwriters, or other arts groups. I am also happy to continue work with a writer who takes a online or face to face course with me.

If you would like to contact an author who has worked with me, please contact me at and I can make that happen.
