My Story

Before you get started, I’d like to introduce you to my world and give you a quick behind-the-scenes written tour of how I ended up becoming a book editor, ghostwriter, writing coach, and all-around best friend to authors over the years.

At my core, I’m a creative just like you. I love the arts—music, literature, fine art and cuisine, and theater. I’ve dabbled and still do dabble in many of them myself. There’s also this other part of me that is able to think deeply and strategically, coming up with plans, patterns, and methods that have yielded phenomenal results. I give God all the glory for that.

I truly believe there is nothing better than being true to yourself and doing what you love. It’s not easy getting there, and it does take some doing the things you don’t like so much.

For me, I made an about-face in college from premed biology (something I didn’t love) to English literature and sociology (something I love a lot) and from working as a banker to becoming a book editor. Contrary to the common belief that editors are not good with number, I was not at all bad at math and science. I just didn’t love it.

What I’ve come to understand is that my aptitude for math and science serves as one of my distinguishing factors in my skillset as an editor and content developer. I suppose it wasn’t all a waste. I use the methodologies all the time to develop book concepts and publishing strategies.

So the deal is this: I am a literary collaborator who not only gets stats, data, and research, but I’m also one who can help an author develop the artful prose it takes to communicate such findings to a wide and interested audience.

Whatever direction you are coming from—creative or strategic—I get you. I get your burning desire to release what's in your heart, I get the method to your madness, and I get what you need to stay on track when that nagging voice calls your mission into question.

This is my story. What’s yours?

The art of editing


"I'm no Michelangelo, but I approach an author's content in much of the same way he looked at slabs of marble: 'I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.'"
