You have less than 3 minutes to capture the attention of an agent, acquisition editor, publisher, judge, and/or reader! Without a phenomenal first chapter, the rest of your story will never be unearthed. Every ounce of energy poured into your first pages will be vital to your success as a writer. Editing includes, but is not limited to: line editing (for flow, tone, clarity, run-on sentences, clichés and pacing), copyediting (for punctuation, grammar, and spelling) AND content editing (character development, plot, and theme).

It is my passion and joy to see authors find their voice in the world of publishing.
My credentials: I am a traditionally published author, a stickler for details, the founder and president of the American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) NY/NJ chapter, leader of a weekly critique group, member of The Christian Pen (Proofreaders and Editors Network), an active judge for several award competitions for writers, and an avid critique guru. I hold a Master’s Degree in Psychology and teach at a private school.
My goal is to help you discover your gift in writing and succeed on your journey!
