  • Thank you for thinking of me. I am interested in certain co-author opportunities, but like you, my time is very limited. If you are looking for an editor to help you take your book draft to the next stage, I can help (for a fee). See Offers page.

    If you are looking for someone to write a first draft without pay over the next year or two, I am already writing my own first and second drafts! Please write your own first draft. I promise you, the experience is invaluable.

  • It depends.


    Email me (see Offers) with a short description of your project; title, if you have one; the current number of pages or words; genre and the type of editing you seek:


    Line editing is sentence-based review of grammar, punctuation, spelling and diction.

    Content editing is the analysis of an idea or story; "flow"; organization; voice and tone.


    Please include the date you need the finished product. I'll send you an estimate via email. If you like what you see, return my estimate with "I accept these terms," along with 35% of the estimate paid to my PayPal or Venmo account (details will be included in the estimate). If for any reason I am unable to do the work, I will refer you to one of my colleagues. I only make referrals to those whose work as editors, authors and teachers I know and trust.

  • I do! Please see Offers and send me a short description of what you'd like to accomplish (ex. gain an overall sense of how to construct a nonfiction or fiction piece) or if you'd like to work on a piece in progress with one-on-one coaching. I'll send you a sample description of a workshop designed especially for you, along with the cost. We can then work out a schedule of meetings, either in person or online.

  • I understand.


    From time to time I teach writing workshops through Safety Harbor Writers and Poets, held at the Safety Harbor Art and Music Center (SHAMc), and Keep St. Pete Lit, held at the Morean Arts Center in St. Petersburg, Florida. Please check those organizations' websites.


    ALSO, I will develop and conduct a 6-week writing workshop especially for a group of 4-6 people who want to share the cost of a workshop and benefit from working with friends. See Opportunities & Offers and email me your phone number so we can speak directly.

  • Five friends and I went through a lot of work to cultivate the Tuesday Night St. Pete Writers Group (we have been going strong almost-weekly since June 2017 and now we meet on different nights), which is currently closed to new members. A writers group can only get so big before it becomes unmanageable. Six people, I've learned from experience, is the sweet spot number for a writers group.

    I encourage you to develop and run your own group. I would be happy to help you coach your group into being over a 3-4 week period for a small fee. Please see Opportunities & Offers and email me your phone number so that we can speak directly.

  • But it will take time, 20 minutes or 2 hours. That's my time I'm devoting to your work.

    I'd be happy to provide feedback for a fee. Please see Offers and send me an email with a description of your project and the type of feedback you are seeking.

  • Sure. Check out my Favorites page.
