FICTION + CREATIVE NONFICTION

My debut historical fiction novel was selected out of thousands of entries in the Story Shares contest and published as a paperback in July 2017. In January 2018, it won the Story Shares Bestseller Contest and came out as a hardback. Click here to purchase your copy from Amazon–part of the proceeds from each sale go to help the nationwide illiteracy crisis.

I also work as a fiction editor! I offer line edits and developmental edits on novels. I’ve worked with both self-published and traditionally published authors, and I have experience editing fiction and non-fiction.
