Few things are more satisfying than being a published author. 

Below is a partial list of books I’ve helped shepherd into the world.

I’ve arranged them by the type of advice I provided, which includes but is not limited to:


* Representing authors as a literary agent * Writing and revising submission queries to literary agents
* Mentoring writers through the process of revising to publishable standard * Developmental/structural editing of fiction and nonfiction manuscripts
* Helping authors find the story in their draft manuscript * Helping memoir writers find a story shape to their lived experience
* Advising subject experts on publishing strategy and platform development * Understanding what it takes to write and get published — twice

Structural Editing

Hello and welcome. I help writers and experts develop their work to a publishable standard, find an agent, and get published.
As the traditionally published author of two books, as a structural editor, former in-house editor and literary agent, I provide fiction and nonfiction writers with the sorts of commercial and constructive feedback you'll never get from a writing class or workshop.
