I started writing when I was nine, and for some reason nobody wanted to publish my Train Wreck Kidnapping Caper written on yellow legal pad paper. I dabbled in screenwriting for years before venturing into novel writing’s deep waters. I’ve written three books, two feature length screenplays, a TV Pilot and some short stories, and sometimes I think I’m pretty good at it. I signed with my agent about a year and a half ago with a YA fantasy novel.
I have worked as a critique partner to NYT Bestseller Lindsay Cummings, helped many friends master the art of pitching and conquer the dreaded synopsis, and all of my CPs tell me I’m awesome. (Don’t ask, just take my word for it.) I have a special knack for character and plot, can help flesh out worlds and find pesky holes (and help fill them). I am obsessive about pacing and voice, both of which can be a deciding factor for an agent. My screenwriting background gives critical eyes to novel structure and will help you see a more cinematic perspective on your story. I can help you nail multiple POVs as all of my books have been dual (or more) and I slay at it. (See my Gryffindor confidence shining through.)
The road to publication is laden with burning logs. I would like to provide some water so you can stay on this journey and reach your goals. I am hoping to find a romance that I want to write fan fiction about, in a world (real or imagined) that I want to live in, with characters that feel alive, and a plot I can’t look away from and don’t stop thinking about after reading.
- Magical Realism/Fabulism
I am not super picky. Just please no love triangles to create false drama. No vampires. (But YAY Zombies) No girls trying to fix bad boys. No boys saving weak girls.
I WILL PROVIDE:
- Edit Letter (Big Picture developmental feedback)
- Line edit (dropping notes into a Word Document)
I will make notes in track changes throughout the document and then provide an editorial letter. We can chat as much as needed about the way to revise!
Someone with determination who doesn’t scare easily.
I have to have a romance. There is no faster way to lose me in the story than to not include some swoons and feels. That said, I tend to shy away from straight romance because I need more plot, grit, and intrigue to stay engaged. I like to read about people making big bold choices. I love characters with some fatal flaws and far away goals. I love to see the underdog win. I am a sucker for complex villains and the messed up heroes that fight them.
- Something I can ship. I live for a good ship.

- Multiple POV Girl friendships
- Stories where the hero and villain could almost be interchangeable

- Anything set in the United Kingdom
- Bonus Points if the love interest is British and looks like Kit Harington
DO NOT SEND ME:
No fae. Only really necessary, believable and hot love triangles. No vampires (unless they are SUPER unique but even then it will be a hard sell). No tragic romances.
Just TV and Film: Game of Thrones, Jessica Jones, Outlander, Shaun of the Dead, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Parks and Rec, Farscape, Battlestar Galactica, Psych, Kingsman, When Harry Met Sally, Bridesmaids, The Devil Wears Prada, Arrested Development, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Glow, Mean Girls…you get the idea. I am all over the place.
