I’m an award-winning writer, but I’m also an editor and a teacher. My specialty is working with emerging writers of literary fiction and nonfiction, and I also have an affinity for the short story. I enjoy helping writers at any stage of their careers with content development and narrative structure, including the cultural narrative, the ethnic or immigrant story. Whether you’re struggling with how to begin, or with polishing a piece for publication, I would love the opportunity to maintain the integrity or your work while helping you make it the best it can be. Although writing is often a solitary experience, I find that writers can reach a new level of accomplishment with the guidance and encouragement of an experienced fellow writer. Let us join you on your literary journey.
I am an award-winning development editor, but I’m a writer, too. My specialty is working with emerging writers of memoir, culture and the arts, how-to, craft and general business. I also work with writers of upmarket commercial women’s fiction. What I enjoy most is helping writers, at any stage of their careers, rise to the next level of the craft.
