A Sensitive, Smart, Experienced Editor
Have you written a book or a story for kids? Do you feel you need a little help to make it perfect? Don't let it sit in your drawer!
I have a 35-year track record as a writer and editor in children's books and magazines. I have worked at Children's Television Workshop, Jim Henson Productions, Scholastic, and HarperCollins. As an author, I've published over 200 books, nonfiction and fiction, for kids of all ages. My books have won numerous awards and been produced on television and radio.
Editing makes for a very pleasant counterpoint to writing, and I love helping people make their writing better. I'll be gentle with your precious manuscript, but I will also be honest with you. If I think that what you've written needs just a light edit, I'll do that for an affordable fee. If I feel you need to do some re-thinking, I'll ask targeted questions to help you do that, and we'll negotiate a fair rate before we start. Though of course I can't promise that your manuscript will be published, our goal will be to end up with one that's bright, shiny, and hopefully publishable.
