The genres I specialize in: Young Adult Young Adult Contemporary Young Adult Fantasy/Paranormal Adult Fantasy/Romantasy/Paranormal My style is tailored to you and focuses on your unique voice and story. I believe in nurturing creativity and enhancing your writing abilities without the stress of burnout and self-doubt. My approach blends practical industry knowledge from my eighteen years working with various publishers (including Macmillan, Penguin Random House, and Blackstone) as both an editor and worldwide bestselling author with an intuitive understanding of storytelling. Working with me, you'll experience a blend of structured guidance, clear and actionable steps, and creative freedom so you can reach your publishing goals. My neurodiversity (ASD + OCD) adds a unique dimension to my coaching, development, and editorial skills, as I understand and appreciate different ways of thinking and creating. Let's work on your novel together so you can step into your power and claim your destiny as a successful author!
