Are you looking for a romance fiction editor or author coach?
Maybe one who loves to dive deep into story structure and GMC?
Someone who enjoys brainstorming and collaboration?
An experienced professional who is just as excited to work with brand-new writers as she is bestsellers?
I'm Jessica, and I might be your girl.
Learn about me through this website, scroll through the books I've worked on, and message me through the Contact page if you'd like to learn more.
If you're a new author who's just finished your first novel (or even your fifth), I've set up my Toolkit page just for you!
I'm here to help romance authors happily ever after...

A little about me
As a coach, I tailor each program to the needs of the individual - some writers are looking for an accountability partner, others want to learn about publishing, and some want to plot out a multi-book series. I am happy offer guidance and support for each of those goals and more!
Looking for a presenter?
I offer workshops that can range from 30-60 minutes on:
- editing hacks
- the different editing passes and why each is important
- the six foundational elements of romance fiction
- how to find and work with a freelance editor
- productivity and project management tips
If you think I might be a good fit for your book, send me a message and let's chat about your project!
The day job & other stuff
I'm a full-time corporate recruiter and a US Army veteran with both Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Intelligence Studies (like spies and military intelligence, not learning and psychology). I have a dog, I like to bake things that are very difficult and often French, and I've left the US every year since 1995 (except 1997).
Catch me on Facebook where I share sage writing advice, silly memes, and photos of the puppers.
On Instagram where I refuse to curate my feed and toss up whatever pet, travel, food or book photo is tickling my fancy at the moment.
Or follow my newest endeavor on TikTok where I am definitely not the core demographic but I have fun posting quick writing tip videos and talking about what I'm reading.
Looking for something else?
Do you have questions about the romance writing community? Need a beta read or critique but not ready for a full edit yet? Wondering if you're on the right track with your current project and want to bounce ideas off someone who isn't a close friend or family member? Looking for someone with a military background to do a sanity check on your dialogue?
Contact me! I love helping people, and if I don't have the answers or information you're looking for, I'll be happy to discuss options with you or offer suggestions to help you find it. I'm always happy to recommend other publishing industry professionals I've worked with.
