Stories are how humans learn and grow, so telling them correctly is a skill that could very well change someone’s life.

I’ve been a full-time editor for over 15 years, helping people craft fictional tales and spinning true stories from their lives into un-put-downable masterpieces. My newsletter is dedicated to passing on what I’ve learned about creating strong narratives, dissecting popular books & TV shows to analyze why the narrative worked (or didn’t), and how to build a community of readers and writers.

There are many voices out there and mine is dedicated to one agenda only: telling good stories and helping others to do so as well.
