Manuscript Editor & Writing Coach


Because every project is unique and every writer needs something different, my rates are customized to your particular project. I provide sample edits for up to 10 double-spaced pages to help determine that rate and show you how I work so you can be sure you're getting what you want and need. I also offer special rates for students (including graduate students in MFA programs) and offer discounts to writers with whom I've worked before. As a writer myself, I know that investing in an editor is a big decision, so I keep my rates competitive and offer a variety of ways to help you make sure you're getting the value you want. 

For a personalized quote and estimate for your project, please email me - tell me a little about your project, including word count, genre, and the kind of editing you're interested in.

A good editor is your partner.

Here's what you can expect from partnering with me.


  • I believe in trust and communication - that's what I expect from my own editors, and that's what I offer writers.
  • I provide free sample edits for up to 10 double-spaced pages so you can get a feel for how I work and if I'm the right editor for you.
  • I create a one-page agreement for services to spell out deadlines & expectations, so you always know exactly what to expect and when you'll get your manuscript back.
  • I use the Track Changes feature in Word or the Suggesting mode in Google Docs so you can see every change I make 
  • I use the Comments feature to note specific places in your manuscript that might need revising or clarification, or  to explain how or why I'm suggesting an edit.
  • With every project, I write an edit letter with overall feedback and explanations.
  • I offer followup feedback, through email or optional phone or Skype/Facetime conferences to discuss edits, answer questions, or help you plan your revision or publishing goals.
