Manuscript Editing & Proofreading

I can help you get your book baby in publication shape.

I’m a USA TODAY bestselling suspense/thriller novelist with 100,000+ books sold worldwide, and I’ve been editing manuscripts for more than 25 years. I can help you get your book baby publication-ready.

I’ve been involved with the publishing industry in one way or another and on both sides of the desk since we used envelopes and stamps to communicate. I have worked with both traditionally and independently published writers throughout the years, as well as editors and agents.

As an editorial assistant, I earned the nickname Conan the Grammarian, which spurred me to publish a grammar and writing newsletter and podcast that had over 50,000 readers and listeners around the English-speaking world.

As a writing instructor and podcaster, I’ve taught writers to get to the essence of their story and raise their game, as well as follow the Chicago Manual of Style to the letter. I have an eye for detail, an ear for dialogue, and a heart for writers.
