Hybrid House

Dream. Create. Inspire. Repeat.

For 6 years, I’ve studied the world of writing and publishing fiction. I’ve studied plot, character, voice, and structure under  Brandon Sanderson, Dave Farland, Lisa Mangum, Carol Lynch Williams, and J. Scott Savage. I’ve read hundreds of queries while working for literary agent Amy Jameson at A+B Works.  But most of all, I’m a writer myself, so I know how important your manuscripts, your worlds, are to you. Check out my service options below to decide what is best for your manuscript.

 I look forward to working with you!

Service Options

Everyone whose every tried to write a book knows that, eventually, we can’t see the little things holding our manuscript back. Even when you’ve got a writing group, their familiarity with your work makes it easy for them to miss things. 

That’s where I come in. My job as your editor is to make sure your manuscript is as ready as possible for you to take the next step in your writing career, whether that is querying an agent or getting ready for your own launch.
