A ghostwriter and editor, I have worked in the entertainment industry for the past ten years on movie sets, in publishing, and as a freelancer. I have Active memberships with the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America, the international Horror Writers Association, and the Romance Writers Association Professional Author Network. I regularly volunteer as a mentor within the HWA and co-chair the San Diego HWA Chapter.

I specialize in editing fiction manuscripts and screenplays, ghostwriting, coaching new writers, and offering the expertise you need to turn your ideas and concepts into concise and polished final products. With fast turnarounds, open communication, meticulous attention to detail, and an elevated level of professionalism, you can rest assured knowing that your project will be given the utmost attention and care.

With an MA in English and Creative Writing with a concentration in Fiction and Screenwriting, I am a lifetime member of Sigma Tau Delta – Alpha Phi Beta, the International English Honor Society. I have published several short stories (Danse Macabre, Silverthought), three anthologies (fourth October 2017 with an intro by Jonathan Maberry), four novels (Leucrota 2008, 2010, Barking Deer 2013, 2015), two produced screenplays (Gharial Productions, Krystek Productions and Synthetic Human), and have won several screen and literary awards including Gold at the California Film Awards (2017), Silver in the International Independent Film Awards (2016), an Award of Merit at the New Renaissance Film Festival in London (2016), and Foreword Book of the Year Awards (2009, 2008).

Prior to working freelance, I worked as an editor for an independent publisher and a technical editor for an architecture and environmental consulting firm, with experience editing and reporting in a daily newsroom.
