Editing that lets your words take flight

Editing is a partnership to ensure the story is clear, cohesive and convincing. I start with reading the work aloud to hear the rhythm and cadence, and where that rhythm breaks, I begin. When the piece lifts off the page, my job is finished.

Lost in Petra

Middle Grade Fiction

Camp Secret

Middle Grade Fiction

Spygirls Press approached me for developmental and copy editing of Lost in Petra and Camp Secret. The challenge was melding the authors’ very distinctive voices into one.

Lost in Petra achieved a Publisher’s Weekly starred review and won the 2013 Moonbeam Children’s Book Award.
