Passionate about what she does, her editing capabilities will carry your stories to their highest potential.

She particularly enjoys chapter books and middle grade novels plus stories that employ fantasy elements, humor or tales that represent her home state, North Carolina, and her current home, Florida. Working on such successes as author Tim Harris’s Exploding Endings series  and Robert Beatty’s NYT Bestselling Serafina series, Jenny skillfully helps author’s reach their dreams with each story she’s given.

 

Working with Jenny has been a pure delight. Her attention to both story and detail gave my children’s books the finishing touches they required and, as a result, one of the books has received publisher attention.

Jenny is an excellent editor. On my middle grade novel Serafina and the Black Cloak, she provided highly detailed feedback, which I used to revise and improve my manuscript before submission to the big publishers. I found her suggestions to be insightful and very useful. That manuscript went on to be purchased by Disney Hyperion and Random House Audio. When I completed an early draft of my next novel, one of the first things I did was send it to Jenny. She is now one of my go-to editors for improving and refining my work. I highly recommend her.
