About me and why I love editing

I was the kid who could not lift her own library bag, loaded with treasures. Now I get to live within the world of stories and interact with the authors!

“Carrie understood my novel by outlining each key plot point and my characters (their motives, development, and relationships). She had the insight to ask pointed questions and was helpful in coaching me to add more detail.”

Hello Indie Author!

Thanks for visiting my site. I’d love to learn about you and your project!

A bit about myself—my passion is collaborating with authors to finesse their books! I love good storytelling and helping authors express their vision.

The authors I have worked with tell me that my suggestions are honest and delivered in a kind, constructive manner. I try to add a bit of humor to lighten the mood, knowing what a privilege it is to contribute to their books.

Often, authors review my feedback and say, “I never thought of it that way!” and excitedly update their manuscript, knowing it will make their story that much better.
