I am working on my next novel

Jean Lafitte on Bourbon Street.

Coming August 2023!


Freelance Editing


I want my clients to feel comfortable with me. I try to be as kind as possible by offering positive feedback. If something doesn't make sense to me, I'll explain why instead of just saying "???".
Every writer has his or her own style and I don't want to take that away,
but every writer (including me!) can always improve. 
I can offer a sample of my work for free for your first 1000 words.

About Me

Storyteller at Heart

My first novel Catch a Break was born when I got into a fender bender. That's when I realized I could weave a story about anything. Some of my stories are based on personal events and some are figments of my broad imagination. I hope you enjoy what I write!
I was born in St. Louis, but grew up in the suburbs of Pittsburgh. So I am a black and gold fan true and true. Now I live in Mechanicsburg, PA, with my husband Dave and our four kids. 

I'm a freelance editor too. If your novel needs some TLC, hit me up! Check out my Services section above.
