I have over thirty years of experience in publishing, as both a writer and an editor. I work with publishers large and small and with individual author clients, in both fiction and nonfiction. My services include creative direction and content development, manuscript evaluation, developmental editing, and line and copy editing. I have a wide range of interests (thanks to a liberal arts background) and enjoy exploring a new subject in the course of my editorial work. I am drawn to the memoir as a journey of self-discovery and transcendence, in the “Hero’s Journey” mode, and I love fiction that bridges reality and invention. My areas of expertise include metaphysics and the perennial wisdom traditions, shamanism, natural and traditional healing, and history, especially the untold stories of traditional peoples and ancient times, places, and cultures.
