How well is your book working? It’s hard for any writer to see his or her own work clearly, and it’s even harder for memoirists, since you are not only the writer but the subject. My feedback is designed to help you get to the next step.


Every book deserves careful editing, and I specialize in editing your book in a way that retains your voice and what makes it special, while polishing it to its best effect.
