You’ve Come to the Write Place!

As an editor with over 30 years of experience at top publishing houses, I believe that what the artist and sculptor Michelangelo once said about his own work applies to all writers, “I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set it free.” 

I want to help you set free the books that are within you.

I’m passionate about editing.

I feel a rush of joy every time I help a writer clearly express exactly what he or she wants to say.

Praise from The Washington Post!

The Washington Post recently announced “the best books to read at every age” and they named my book 65 Things to Do When You Retire as the best book for age 65!
