"Debra is unique breed of editor/writer and a joy to work with: A creative co-conspirator with a keen mix of intelligence, writing chops, and editorial acumen." *  

 

Debra works closely and collaboratively with a wide range of individuals. As a bestselling author, she’s keenly adept at crafting a book’s editorial structure, supporting an author’s unique narrative voice, and developing compelling prose with engaging takeaways and “deep think.”  She often shepherds books from initial concept to publication, mentoring people through the creative process while providing insights on publishing and market launch. Many of Debra's authors are message-driven leaders in the self-help/wellness, creativity, and pop culture arenas.

 Her editorial services include:

 

  • Book coaching and collaborative writing

  • Book proposals and book doctoring

  • Developmental editing and manuscript evaluations

"As a publisher I’ve been lucky enough to work on numerous books with Debra. My first project with her was an important book that needed a significant editorial rehaul and had eluded previous writers. She pulled together a cohesive new structure and strong narrative voice with exceptional flair. The book went on to be one of our best-selling titles. She continued to work with diverse authors on a number of books as a developmental editor and collaborative writer, always with an uncanny ability to dive deep into the editorial process. She also worked as an acquisitions editor with a sharp eye on what’s trending. Debra is unique breed of editor/writer and a joy to work with: A creative co-conspirator with a keen mix of intelligence, writing chops, and editorial acumen." - Rachel Neumann, Director of Strategic Initiatives, Executive Editor & Literary Agent at Idea Architects.  Former Publisher & Editorial Director of Parallax Press
