Sandra Wendel is a highly experienced book editor who specializes in helping authors write, polish, and publish their nonfiction manuscripts.

Her greatest joy in editing is working with authors who have a story to tell. She has worked with Holocaust survivors, a Secret Service agent, a bank robber, entrepreneurs, an eighties rock groupie, a homicide detective, funeral home director, real estate agents, chefs, doctors, lawyers, and plenty of ordinary people with extraordinary stories.

She is a published author herself, sharing the authorship of two award-winning, empowering consumer health books with Edward T. Creagan, MD, a physician from Mayo Clinic (www.AskDoctorEd.com):
• How Not to Be My Patient: A Physician’s Secrets for Staying Health

Here's why: Some of us are visual writers or audio writers. Some are kinesthetic writers. My book has plenty of tips to help you identify which writer you are and how you can overcome any blocks. For example, an audio writer becomes clearly annoyed with outside noise, birds chirping or the furnace cycling on and off. My book explains a super helpful technique you can use, and no spoiler, I refer you to chapter 12.(less)

And I am here to help you navigate the author/publisher path to publishing. In between the writing and the publishing parts is the editing. Never skip this step.

Because I found myself telling new authors the same advice, I decided to summarize it all in this book. I also teach classes on how to write, publish, and market a book at our community college. I know your frustrations. I know you feel vulnerable. I have the best advice for you, and I know you'll feel much more confident going into the publishing part when you understand how editors help you put your best book forward. (less)

So glad to find the author and his series. Love the character Virgil Jones. A good escape series, fast reading, with plenty of plot twists. This author has nailed authentic cop dialogue too.
