I've been editing since ’02; designing for print + web since the ’90s, ebooks since 2014.

My book series would not exist without Laura, my indefatigable editor extraordinaire, whose deep understanding of structure, organization, and storytelling show themselves on every page, pulling my scribblings together into a unified whole.

Laura, thank you for your help in designing my manuscript. Your insight was invaluable in helping me get my book over the finish line. It has been met with really nice reviews from both advisors and home office employees and I literally couldn’t have done it without you. I hope to work with you in the future on other projects.

Laura was a pleasure to work with. She is knowledgeable, approachable, and answers questions without talking down to you. She works with you with the goal to create the best design inside and out for your story!
