I’ve been working with text professionally for 21 years. I’ve edited for magazines, film and television, high-stakes assessment tests in Reading, educational publishers, marketing collateral, and internet sites, and of course books. For a time in 2012-2013, I edited novel manuscripts (thriller, mystery, romance, fantasy, and more) for CreateSpace.com, Amazon’s self-publishing arm.

I provide book-length editorial services and consultation on a freelance basis for writers at varying stages of their projects. I also provide one-on-one instruction to writers of literary fiction and genre fiction. My rates are market-competitive. If you’re interested in these services, please inquire using the contact page.

Currently, among the freelance work I do, I write reading passages for assessments, such as PSAT and SAT practice tests, and other classroom instructional products in Reading and Literacy. I write both fiction and nonfiction to spec for grades 2 through 12, and teacher instruction in high school textbooks in Reading.
