She has a solid grasp of structure.

Amy gave me an organized and very detailed edit letter. She thoroughly outlined everything that worked and everything that didn't. She has a solid grasp of structure and many other story elements needed for writing fiction. I would highly recommend her services!

About Me

I look for the stories that ignite goodness in a dark world, be they stories of magic or redemption.

In the darkest days of my life, I found friends among the pages of Poe, Stine, and Shakespeare. I know what it is like for a paragraph to understand me in a way that no person can. I consider my clients’ stories as someone’s best friend waiting to happen.

In 2012, I graduated from Oregon State University after earning a BA in English with a focus in technical and business writing. Immediately after graduation, I worked as a business writer.

In 2014, I had the opportunity to quit my job, build a family, and pursue a career as an author.

That brought me even more opportunities to hone my editing skills. I completed manuscript evaluations, developmental edits, and copy editing in both fiction and non-fiction since joining the world of writers.

I am excited to join the ranks of professional freelance editors as I launch my brand-new editing business.
