About Me

It’s Important to Know Your Editor!

Hi! My name is Heather, and I am a freelance editor in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I live here with my husband, two dogs, two cats, and one axolotl. It’s a full house! When I am not editing, I am likely reading, baking, or out enjoying nature. 

I was lucky enough to grow up in a world where I could see myself in the things I watched and read. Having representation of all kinds is absolutely vital, and something I am passionate about participating in.

I have been a book lover for as long as I can remember. Even before I could read, I was obsessed with the look of the words on the pages, the pictures on and between the covers, the worlds my mother’s voice transported me to… Then, when I learned to read, I couldn’t stop! I distinctly remember my fourth grade teacher going to the store after school one day to buy new books for our classroom library, because I had read through all of her books already. Thanks, Mrs. Scott! I take this passion for reading I have had my whole life and devote it to my clients’ manuscripts as well. My goal is to take the amazing worlds you create and strengthen them, while maintaining your voice. 

I am not just working with passion. I attended a two-year program and have a Certificate in Editing from University of California, San Diego and the Poynter ACES Certificate in Editing.

Testimonial

“Heather’s feedback made me feel truly seen for the first time as a writer! I was absolutely glowing after receiving the feedback and suggestions on my opening chapter. Writing can feel very daunting and isolating sometimes, but Heather’s feedback made me feel as though I had a friend in my corner both rooting for me and encouraging my growth.”
Carly , Author of With Blood & Bone
“Before anything, she asked for clearly outlined expectations from me. She also outlined her qualifications, gave me a rundown on what services she would provide (plus how I should expect to see them), and she gave me a clear deadline for when I could expect edits back. She also checked in along the way giving delightfully positive feedback and kept me in the loop on where she was in the process.”
Rose Rayne Rivers, author of Someone’s Always Watching
