For writers seeking editorial service at an affordable rate. I can help you!


As a multi-published author of historical fiction, romance, contemporary fiction, and non-fiction ...with more than twenty published works to my credit, I am available to help you shape your manuscript into the best possible book.


I am a member of the Texas Institute of Letters ( and have been published by major publishing houses such as Penguin USA, HarperCollins, Kensington, and Harlequin.

I have also independently published three novels, and understand the challenges that face emerging writers who desire to control their material.

Many of my books have appeared in Literary Guild, Doubleday Book Club, Black Expressions Book Club, and on a variety of best-seller lists in both hardcover and paperback.

With so many years invested in the publishing industry, I understand the challenges that authors face, whether they are seasoned or novice. I have worked with many writers to help them shape their manuscripts for eventual publication.

Contact me - I'd love to be a part of your journey to publication.  

I hope that writers will trust me, as their editor, to point out both the strengths and weaknesses of their manuscript in order to target their work toward the appropriate reading audience, while maintaining the writer's unique voice and  style. 

 Throughout the editorial process I  promise to provide honest, constructive feedback to help the author create the best possible book, while respecting the writer's point of view, the purpose for the book, and the intent of the work.  


I do not accept poetry, technical writing, stream of consciousness, or extreme/fantasy experimental writing.
