Helping authentic stories come to life! 

Hi, I’m Susi, an editor, writer, marketing specialist, wife, and mom with a bit of a coffee addiction!

At first glance, editing and marketing may seem like an odd combination. After nearly 20 years in marketing, I leaned toward assignments that involved writing and editing website and email content. 

Meanwhile, I also wrote a few novels (which are still sitting somewhere on my computer because my neurodivergent brain can’t seem to hit “send” on any of the query letters). I joined writing and critique groups and was always the first to volunteer to beta-read other people’s stories. I loved editing fiction—almost as much as writing it!

That led to classes. I obtained a copyediting certification and then took a few developmental editing courses. Then, a few more. Learning is fun, and I couldn’t get enough. 

As a neurodivergent woman with chronic illnesses, I found myself drawn to stories with characters facing similar challenges—but found they often leaned on stereotypes rather than lived experiences. I genuinely feel these stories are essential, and I love seeing these characters live fulfilling lives. So, I added sensitivity and accuracy reading to my services.

Have a look around, and please let me know if you have any questions or if there is any way I can help you with your projects.

Writing has always been a favorite activity for me, and I firmly believe that sharing the lived experiences of people with chronic illness, disability, and neurodivergence is a key to acceptance. 

I write about the above topics, as well as writing and editing tips, on my blog.  

 

I am also available to:

  • Write guest posts on blogs and online magazines
