Editing and Writing Services

I have 14 years of experience as a writer, editor, and English teacher. I have worked as a freelance editor on memoirs, novels, and non-fiction books and articles at all stages, from developmental to copy editing. I have experience writing articles, interviews, blog posts and newsletters for businesses and non-profits.

My goal as a writer and editor is to take your ideas and content and bring them to life with clear, precise language. I love figuring out the best way to put information into words.

I serve as Fiction Editor at Rivet: the Journal of Writing that Risks, and I’m a founding editor at Red Bridge Press. From 2008-2013, I published monthly online newsletters for the non-profit WomenArts. My fiction and prose poetry have been published in print and online journals, and I received honors for both my undergraduate and graduate theses. I have worked with many writers for whom English is a second or third language.

Take a look at my Resume and my Publications for more details about my experience, and please contact me for work samples, rates, and references.


Deborah has an incredible skill. She can read a manuscript and come up with a pragmatic approach to move the process towards completion. After only a few months of working with her, I feel that I can finally finish my novel within the year. I am incredibly grateful to her for her invaluable contribution to this possibility, and look forward to sending her more material. I absolutely trust her work.” — Anne Kroeger

“I thought that was a fine job of editing. That’s really something I rarely say.” — Contributing author, Writing That Risks: New Work from Beyond the Mainstream, Red Bridge Press, July, 2013.
