Meet the Editor
Welcome! I’m Alice.
I’m a developmental editor and copyeditor committed to making your stories shine.
I’ve been passionate about writing and editing since—well, as long as I can remember. I love a gripping story and a well-placed semicolon, and I’ll help you get them both just right.
Writing a YA novel? I can’t wait to read it.
I’m well-versed in a variety of genres, but my specialty is young adult literature. If you’re working on a YA novel with a bold protagonist struggling to navigate the world, I can’t wait to read it and help you turn it into a masterpiece. (Bonus points if there’s a romantic interest, too!)
I help you fill plot holes and find the perfect twist.
I’m the Editor-in-Chief of The Write Practice, where I help writers grow in their craft every day. I’m also a Story Grid certified developmental editor, and I use this robust methodology to help you find exactly where your story’s going right (and not-so-right).
Most importantly, I’ll help you find solutions to fix your story problems, so you can edit—and publish!—with confidence.
I help you put every comma in its proper place.
I mentioned above that I love a great story, and I also love a perfectly used semicolon. I’m a persnickety, detail-oriented grammar enthusiast who loves nerding out about en-dashes versus em-dashes and whether it’s really against the rules to split infinitives. (Spoiler alert: That’s an archaic “rule” you don’t need to follow.)
I can spot a rogue italicized semicolon a mile away (well, maybe not quite a mile away, but you get the picture). I put my typo-hunting skills to use copyediting writing from blog posts to books.
And when I’m not editing, I knit.
When I’m not helping you brainstorm the perfect twist for your story or correcting pesky comma splices, you can find me curled up in a cozy chair by a window with the next great YA novel, my latest knitting project, and a hot cup of tea.
Find out how I can help you make your story shine.
