As the author of four novels from major publishers and with more than 18 years of freelance editing experience, I bring passion, compassion, and a highly trained eye to my clients’ projects, helping to make their writing and publishing dreams come true. My specialty in editing is fiction, all styles and genres, but I am equally comfortable with nonfiction, especially narrative nonfiction, memoir, how-to, history, sports, true crime, psychology, and popular culture. My other areas of editing expertise are query letters for literary agents and editors, manuscript synopses, nonfiction book proposals, business proposals, and keynote speeches. I am also highly experienced in editing graduate school and other application essays and personal statements. I know what it takes to get published today because I have received my share of rejection letters, along with great success. My two most recent novels are DEAR MR. CARSON, published by The Permanent Press in New York in 2006, and THE REMARKABLE JOURNEY OF MISS TRANBY QUIRKE, first published in England by Virago Press in 1996 and published for the first time in the U.S. by Bold Strokes Books in New York in 2009. My educational background includes a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Northwestern University and a master’s degree in creative writing from The University of East Anglia in Norwich, England, where I studied under former Poet Laureate Sir Andrew Motion. In 1994 I received a Hawthornden Fellowship to Hawthornden Castle in Lasswade, Scotland, and in 2011 I received a Literary Artist Fellowship from The Wisconsin Arts Board.
