I am an independent fiction editor in sunny Florida. I have edited a variety of genres, including fantasy, historical fiction, horror, paranormal, post-apocalypse, and science fiction, just to name a few. I edited New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Melanie Karsak's Beauty and Beastly, which won Preditors & Editors' "Best Steampunk Novel of 2017," as well as Olivia Wildenstein's The Masterpiecers, the Foreword INDIE 2016 Silver Winner in Mystery. I am fortunate to edit novels and short stories for independent authors, as well as for publishers such as Evolved Publishing, Damnation Books, Eternal Press, and Blood Bound Books.
What I love most about editing is cultivating relationships with authors. I feel fortunate to be able to share in their creative vision as an editorial partner. I am inspired by their dedication and I enjoy helping them achieve their goals.
I am passionate about editing, and my clients reap the benefits to make their work better than when we started. I offer competitive pricing and a friendly approach that I hope takes the stress out of editing.

Preditors & Editors Reader's Poll
In this tale as old as time, Isabelle Hawking must tinker a solution to a heartbreaking mystery.
When Isabelle Hawking and her papa set out from London on a sea voyage, Isabelle is thrilled. Visiting foreign courts, learning from master tinkerers, and studying mechanicals is her dream. And it doesn't hurt that the trip also offers Isabelle an escape from her overbearing and unwanted suitor, Gerard LeBoeuf.
But Isabelle never arrives. Swept up in a tempest, her ship is lost.
Isabelle survives the storm only to be shipwrecked on a seemingly deserted island. The magical place, dotted with standing stones, faerie mounds, and a crumbling castle, hints of an ancient past. Isabelle may be an unwilling guest, but her arrival marks a new beginning for the beastly residents of this forgotten land.
See how New York Times bestselling author Melanie Karsak puts a steampunk spin on the classic Beauty and the Beast fairy tale.
