No writer can do it alone.

I'm Jess.

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.
