Since 1995 I’ve worked as a developmental editor on more than a thousand books, magazine articles and screenplays. I’ve collaborated on and ghost-written dozens of fiction and non-fiction books. And I’ve helped many writers develop their craft, complete their books, and become published authors.

Books that I have co-authored include:
