About Me

I love getting wrapped up in a good book, just dying to know what happens next. My motivation is to ensure that my clients' books can deliver that kind of experience to readers without the distractions of syntax errors, dangling modifiers, or misplaced punctuation, to name a few. I believe in accomplishing this goal while preserving each author's voice and unique style.

I provide varying levels of editing for self-publishing authors and the following publishers:

I earned my bachelor's degree in English from Texas A&M University, and I have been editing ever since. As I've developed my expertise, I have avidly studied and adhered to The Chicago Manual of Style.


I have edited numerous blog posts, resumes, marketing materials, and academic journal articles. My true passion, though, is for books. I especially enjoy editing contemporary fiction, historical fiction, suspense novels, and women's fiction. I also have extensive experience with nonfiction, including memoirs, self-help books, and books on business. 

When I'm not editing, I enjoy cooking tasty new recipes, exploring Dallas with my husband, and relaxing at home with a good cup of coffee.

I would love the opportunity to use my passion and experience to help you craft your best possible work and grow as an author. If you’re interested, let’s talk soon!
