Author, Editor and Book Formatting Specialist

I am an author and freelance editor from upstate NY.  I love reading, writing, spending time with my family, and editing.  In 2017, I completed an editing course at Herkimer County Community College (Herkimer, NY) and received a certificate called “Keys to Effective Editing.”  My experience includes copy editing, production editing, designing and type setting.

I published my first children’s book, Hammy’s New Home, in 2015. Since then, I have published other children’s books: If I Were A Duck, Annie to the Rescue, Border Buddies (an early reader’s chapter book), and Chrissy’s Candy Shop.

My first novel, The Way Home, will be released soon!
