I'm your editor.
Manuscript Master-Surgeon with
10+ Years of Editorial Experience.
And a massive lit nerd. Does that admission belong in the first sentence of a bio? Yes. Because you need an editor who will love your characters as much as you do—and one who will celebrate and protect what makes your voice different from everybody else's.
I'm a writing educator, magazine manager, and book physician with a decade of publishing industry experience, an always up-to-date political sensitivity barometer, and a mean passion for detangling tough prose. You pick the path, and I'll help you see clearly through the trees.
Together, we will...
Enhance, elevate, revise, and polish your story into a submission-ready manuscript.
Plan a path to publication.
Make sure your book is the best damn book it can be.
Kind words from writers:
Jess is the best editor I know.
I trust her with my work entirely.
