Even the best writers need help. Some need help with structure. Others grammar. Some just need an accountability partner who’ll ask, “How many pages did you write this week?” Others need help getting the commas in the right place. All of us need someone to make sure we didn’t type “mantle” when we meant “mantel” — because how embarrassing is that?

Some people aren’t writers, and need help getting words out of their head and into text.

Compass, Magnifier, Pen, Coffee Cup and notebook on a Wood deskAs your writing coach, I can do any or all of those things, and then some:

  • Brainstorming
  • Developmental Editing
  • Ghostwriting
  • Line Editing
  • Copyediting
  • Proofreading

Here are details about what each of these things entails.

My specialty is speculative fiction, especially that written from a Christian worldview, though I also work with writers working in the general market. That said, I also have plenty of experience working in other genres, including nonfiction.

With more than ten years of newsroom experience, I am trained to produce prose that is clear, concise, and correct. With my fiction training, I can identify inconsistencies, point-of-view problems, and description insufficiencies. I help writers and publishers serve readers by delivering great prose.
