Welcome to Scribe & Sunshine

I am a freelance editor and creativity coach living in the Pacific Northwest. I want authors to just do the damn thing—the “damn thing” being to let go of the illusion of perfection and publish that book already! I’ll give you confidence in your manuscript and empower you to step forward through shaky hands and sweaty armpits, ready to take on your next creative adventure.

I specialize in editing stories of transformation in contemporary fiction and creative nonfiction; these can include stories of disillusionment, religious deconstruction (aka ex-vangelical), and coming-of-age stories, to name a few. I’m also the co-captain of The Writer’s Helm, an inclusive writing community focused on giving writers the tools and support to help them achieve their goals.

You have something special to share with the world, and I can help you get it out there.
