I am now an editor on Reedsy.com. I'm also taking on private clients seeking editing services. Whether the edit required is light or comprehensive, fiction or nonfiction, I'm happy to discuss your project.
Over the past five years, my clients have included international bestselling mystery novelist Anne Perry (collaboration and full editing of ten novels and five novellas) and the memoir of National Book Award recipient Robb Forman Dew (full editing services). Having created seven anthologies, I've also had the honor of working with, and doing light edits for, such authors as Caroline Leavitt, Amy Ferris, Leon Whiteson, Jane Smiley, Susan Cheever, Dani Shapiro, Jeffery Deavers, Hallie Ephron, Robert Dugoni, William Kent Krueger, Cara Black, and dozens more.

EXIT LAUGHING: How Humor Takes the Sting Out of Death
I love you. The meeting ran late. I want a divorce. One little word, one casual lie, one devastating announcement -- and our lives are turned upside down forever. In He Said What?: Women Write About Moments When Everything Changed, twenty-five gifted women writers share profoundly personal moments in which men in their lives said something—good or bad—that changed them irrevocably. This eclectic group of essays is fascinating, heartbreaking, hilarious. Most of all, each one demonstrates the incredible power that words have in influencing our lives.
What happens when you realize that your picture-perfect boyfriend is a liar and a bully? Or when you dedicate your life to someone who suddenly orders you to pack your bags and leave? What does it feel like when your brother tells you he's gay? Imagine attending an international conference on women's rights, only to discover that nearly every right has been trampled ... and things at home aren't going so well, either!
Funny, provocative, touching, thrilling, He Said What? illustrates the powerful impact the right, or wrong, words can have on our lives. Contributing authors include: Barbara Abercrombie, Beverly Donofrio, Margot Duxler, Amy Ferris, Abby Frucht, BJ Gallagher, Jane Ganahl, Bonnie Garvin, Sherry Glaser-Love, Kathi Kamen Goldmark, Rose Guilbault, Pam Houston, Carrie Kabak, Caroline Leavitt, Maxinne Leighton, Joyce Maynard, Christine O’Hagan, Mary Pols, Karen Quinn, Dianne Rinehart, Colleen Robinson, Jenny Rough, Clea Simon, Starhawk, Victoria Zackheim.
