Quote or Key Phrase

Writing a book is an adventure. To begin with, it is a toy and an amusement. Then it becomes a mistress, then it becomes a master, then it becomes a tyrant. The last phase is that just as you are about to be reconciled to your servitude, you kill the monster and fling him to the public.”  –  Winston Churchill

I understand, because I am a writer as well as an editor. Before you fling your book anywhere – the junk drawer, your dog, or especially the public – let’s work together to ensure that it is the best it can possibly be.

Personal Biography

I specialize in MS evaluations, editing  and coaching for fiction and narrative non-fiction writers (memoir or biography.)
