About Me

A literary agent, professional editor, and writing coach, I am the founder of Gold Dust Literary Agency, Gold Dust Editing & Book Reviews, and FiBs, a storytelling platform. I edit adult fiction in multiple genres, review books for Publishers Weekly, and freelance for Hallmark Publishing and HarperCollins. Whether journeying to a happily-ever-after, saving the world from the next zombie apocalypse, or figuring out whodunit, I can help polish your manuscript by improving character and plot development, smoothing the flow, tightening sentences, resolving inconsistencies, developing transitions, strengthening conflict, and much more. I always maintain the writer’s style and voice.
