Whether you're a veteran author, or just starting out as a writer; whether you're an academic or an an artist - or a little bit of both - I pay attention to what you're after, what is happening in your work, and what you say. I can help you think, and I can help your book get better.
What's the issue?
Your novel is almost finished, but the plot has unraveled
Your monograph is lurching between memoir and textbook
You're writing in a new genre for the first time
You're writing about a new genre for the first time
You're not sure how to select or arrange your poems/stories/chapters
Something's the matter - and you don't know what
How I can help
I read every word you write, looking for consistency and clarity, listening for voice, and rhythm. If something is not working, I know how to fix it.
I also listen to YOU - for what kind of writer you are and want to be, for what's driving your project. My goal is to help you write the book that only you can write.
