When your manuscript needs a second look


Welcome to my website


As a writer myself, I know how daunting it is handing over your manuscript for a beta read. I understand a writer’s psyche and the many deaths we die when flaws are pointed out in the story that has taken long months, or years, to write.

I can promise that your beloved child (your story) is safe with me. I’ve been an avid reader for over fifty years; it will be no trouble for me to immerse myself in the world you’ve created, regardless of your genre. Each story is an opportunity to visit the imagination and vision of another. While absorbing yours I will bring myself to it not as an editor or critic, but as a reader.

Please stay awhile and browse my pages. You will find my pricing and other relevant information on the My Services page. For client testimonials please visit this page.

I look forward to hearing from you!


What my clients say


Insightful comments, fast service

Folklorist Frank Dobie said that he liked to leave a story in better shape than it was in when he found it. I sent my 90K suspense thriller to Deb and within a week, she returned a complete report plus numerous, specific margin comments. Everything she said was on the mark, and she left my story in better shape than when I sent it to her. Her service was well worth the money and I will use her for my next novel.
