Editing Services

I am a freelance independent editor handling both fiction and nonfiction: novels, short stories, narrative nonfiction and memoir.

I currently have a nearly full roster of clients and can therefore accept only a small percentage of the writers who query me. If you’re familiar with my books and blog, please feel free to let me know why you think I’d be the best editor for your work. Although I can no longer respond to generic multiple-submission queries, I am still very much a sucker for a talented writer with a fabulous story and sincere passion for our wonderful art and craft.

Please feel free to contact me for an estimate on your manuscript.


Copy & Line Editing without Developmental Editing is available only to previous and current clients.


All payment are in USD. Online payments may incur an additional surcharge.


I must charge a two-hour rush fee for any projects paid for within two weeks of our scheduled work without prior arrangement.
