I'm a freelance editor, working directly with authors and small presses. I am also the editorial director at Lakewater Press and volunteer my time proof reading for Ink Pantry Publishing. I have mentored writers in numerous writing contests over the last few years, in particular as an MG Pitch Wars mentor since 2015. My award-winning, middle grade sci-fi novel, WINELL ROAD, was finally published by me in 2016.

So many writers quit because they can't or won't accept feedback, or become disheartened with the process. Just don't. If you want to make it, if you want to have your work out there, then persevere. It will happen one day if you want it to. (less)
Kate Foster I write something else. Maybe a blog, a newsletter, or a random article. Maybe even start on a different novel idea. Anything but not write!

I lingered somewhere between three and four stars for this one. It is a good book and definitely stays true to the middle grade horror labelling. It's dark and twisty and scary and there's a forest and graves and monsters - which is awesome. I liked ...more

As sequels go, this is one of the most exciting and intense I've ever read. As Rebecca Carpenter's editor, I was on tenterhooks waiting for her to send book 2 in the series to me, especially since book 1, BUTTERFLY BONES, is such a whizzbang of a deb ...more
