You’re always with yourself, so you might as well enjoy the company.

Diane von Furstenberg

And like most people, the different parts of me intersect and (mostly) get along.

Mary: The Story Whisperer

Fiction editor, bringing out your story’s glory.

Stories are an interesting animal. Always changing, having ideas of their own, running off in unexpected directions. As the “Story Whisperer,” I’m the editor who speaks your manuscript’s language. Basically, your book and I have a little chat, then I translate what was said so I can help you bring out your story’s glory.

Writing can be dark and scary, but it doesn’t have to be. Once a month, I send out Writelight—the writing newsletter that’s a light in the dark—that demystifies the author process with resources and encouragement so you know you aren’t alone on this weird and wonderful journey. Join here for a little light in your inbox.

    M.T.: Mistress of Words

    Author of all the things, and weaver of word magic

    Word magic is, in my humble opinion, the best kind. Whether its lyrical fantasy about magical circuses or campy superhero stories with lines like “and then a giant slot machine on legs dropped from the sky,” I invite you to join me on an adventure across time and space for a little escape and a lot of fun.
