After a 15-year career of working with many New York agents and authors, interviewing top writers in their field, as well as editing five issues (and counting) of Conclave, I decided to work more closely with authors, helping them to achieve their maximum success.

I’ve worked with a wide variety of writers, including Jane Yolen, Peter S. Beagle, Karen Essex, C.J. Cherryh, and Jessica Amanda Salmonson. I've edited authors from New York Times bestseller William Bernhardt, to newcoming talent such as supernatural young adult author Jo Banks.

My editorial experience and personal interests include literary fiction, history, memoir, horror and thriller. I have been a guest lecturer with the writing program at Rose State University in Oklahoma, where I have discussed poetry, publishing, and historical research. I have also served as VP in charge of programming for the Oklahoma City Writers, Inc. and have given presentations at the Edmond Writers' Group.

My poetry has appeared in over thirty literary journals, and my novel is represented by the Linda Chester Literary Agency.
