New to Savant but not to editing, I have taught English and writing for over 30 years and am appreciative of the high level of literary competency that can be achieved often with the simplest of editing.

I firmly believe, as Marty Rubin at has stated, “ Only the blank page needs no editing.” It is hard for an author to ferret out the strengths of his or her creations, or to catch and correct inherent weaknesses without a professional editor's skillful outside point-of-view. I am excited to join Savant to help bring out the best in poetry, fiction, memoirs (my personal favorites), or whatever manuscript comes my way.
