In her own words:

I’ve had a love affair with words for as long as I can remember. You could always find me hidden behind the bookshelves, nose firmly planted in the musky pages of a well-thumbed horror or crime paperback, as I inhaled those stories with a frantically beating heart. Then my teens hit, and my love for words battled with my love for boys–and better yet, book boyfriends. Ever since then, I have devoured thousands of romance stories, finding my niche in contemporary romance, with a particular interest in the growing New Adult genre and in gay romance.

As a writer myself (of romantic comedies and New Adult for both straight and gay couples – hence the name of my editing business, “One Love”), I understand the struggles of getting pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) to get your words out. The best piece of advice that I have for you, which admittedly I find hard to follow myself, is to get it out, get those words down on paper, and worry about the editing later. That’s where I come in. I can help you bring your story together and polish the words that you’ve brought to life.

Professionally, I hold a Bachelor of Psychology and work in human resources by day, and as a professional proofreader for a large romance publisher by night. I look forward to working with you on your manuscript!
