As an editor for 6 plus years, I’ve worked with novelists, self-help authors, magazine article writers, international students, and children’s book authors to sharpen their focus and communicate their vision. I’m proud to say I actually do get to use my degree in English Literature in real life.
As a writer for over 8 years, I’ve spent countless hours writing fiction, with one short story making it to the top 5% in a Glimmer Train short fiction contest. My articles have covered everything from disaster preparedness for seniors to artist profiles to diminishing aquifers. I’m a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association, the Writers’ League of Texas, and the Houston Writers Guild, and am currently serving as President-Elect for Brazos Writers (2015-2016).
A good editor capitalizes on your strengths and minimizes your weaknesses, getting the results you want much more quickly. Because first impressions count, whether it’s with an agent, a client, a publisher, or a reader.
A good editor enables you to keep doing what you do best: write. Because your message is important.
