Writer, Editor, YouTuber
To be human is to tell stories. But communicating effectively requires practice and craft. I have studied writing craft, literary theory, and criticism for years, earning a B.A. in English along the way. I've been actively writing fiction and non-fiction for seven years. During that time, I proved my mettle in beta reader circles and then launched my freelance editing business at the end of 2018.
I know what makes a story succeed in terms of theme, logic, structure, characterization and rhetorical situation. I typically read 8-20 books a month depending on circumstances (As I write this on December 30th, 2022 I've hit 115 for the year).
I have been a mentor in various roles for over 15 years which has given me insight into how to guide people toward their aspirations.
I live for stories that give hope or shine a glint of light in a dark world, be it the magic of an Urban Fantasy, the familiar joy in a family drama, or the redemption within memoir.
