My Mission

As a bookworm, when I open a book, I want to get lost in the characters, their stories, and their journeys to finding their satisfying endings. As a fiction editor, I want to help you create the same engaging experience that has readers coming back to your books again and again. 

My Specialty

I am knowledgeable and well-versed across all fiction genres (not including horror or erotica). Specializing in romance (contemporary, paranormal, urban fantasy, historical) young adult, and mystery (romantic suspense, thriller, cozies)
