If you are just starting out with an outline or have a pile of stories, let me organize your writing into a coherent story. My specialty is helping writers convey life learned messages in memoirs. From individuals of domestic abuse, losing loved ones, living with a spouse incarcerated, living as a runaway, losing a newborn, religious walks of faith and spiritual encounters, just to name a few, let me help you organize and clearly convey your message to your readers.

I have my certification in Publishing from University of Denver Publishing Institute and my bachelor’s in English, and I have over ten years of experience helping writers in all stages of the writing process. I edit for typographical errors, grammar, syntax, punctuation, tone, content, and consistency using Microsoft Word’s Track Changes following the Chicago Manual of Style. I also include comments and suggestions throughout the reading. If you need someone with a keen eye for detail and a grammatical guru, I would be more than happy to help you out.

Get your publication polished to perfection!


Katharine taught me to trust her ‘lens’ in regards to my intentions and gently, but relentlessly, encouraged me to dig deeper. I was either lazy or well trained. I have written letters to the editor for 40 years – bound by a 300 word maximum, which I would hit, on the nose, every time. It took time for me to expand and embrace the luxury of my storytelling. I can say, unequivocally, that the responses and encouragement I received from Katharine as friend/editor became the impetus for what is published today – which is changing, blessing, and affecting the many lives that have embraced it. – Catherine Crabill
