Hey, Drawing on my extensive background in developmental editing for young adult fiction, I am uniquely positioned to bring your manuscript to life. Through a collaborative process, I will provide insightful feedback on character arcs, plot structure, and thematic elements, ensuring your story captivates and resonates with young adult readers. I am an experienced ghostwriter, novelist, and screenwriter in fiction and non-fiction with one goal in mind—helping you reach your publishing goal! I’ve worked on hundreds of fiction projects, and some of my works have gone on to become best sellers on Amazon. Although I’ll never take credit for them, I’m fine with simply knowing that somewhere in the world, someone is reading something I’ve written, and smiling or crying, depending on the context of the job. There is nothing as pleasing as being a fiction writer, ghostwriter or even be versatile enough to be a nonfiction writer to help you write the best eBook you will ever need. The art of piecing words together intrigues me every day because almost everyone wants to own a book because they have wonderful creative ideas, but the tricky thing is that not everyone can write. But that is fine, that is why you have me. WRITING, IS MY PASSION with over 10 years of experience. Please leave a message on my chat so we can discuss further and deadline of the project. Thanks.
