Quote or Key Phrase

“Chris is probably the best editor that I’ve had the privilege of working with – and I’ve worked with many. He’s thorough, honest, insightful and delivers on time. If you need someone to polish your prose, he’s the man. ”
—Daniel Pouesi, well known US author from American Samoa.

Personal Biography


If you are unsure whether your story is effective and if it would benefit from a professional edit, I can help. I am a former journalist, a newspaper editor, book publisher and a fiction writer. I will evaluate your manuscript and edit a few pages to show where and how you can polish your words and ideas. (Many writers tend to constantly repeat the same editorial mistakes. Once I have pointed them, you can easily correct them.) Integral to an evaluation, I also comment on, and suggest ways to improve the structure of your manuscript and your story-telling techniques. Please contact me; I will help your story.
