Soaring Arrow Editing



Giving Wings to Your Words

Your readers are good, responsible people, but you may want to preface your book with a disclaimer that parents should call ahead for pizza and ask the neighbor kid to walk the dog. Soaring Arrow Editing fosters positive, lasting relationships with independent authors of fiction and memoir by collaborating to create books that will make readers want to curl up on the couch with a bowl of popcorn, hating to pause long enough to turn on the lights when it gets dark.


I enjoy assisting authors in sharing their story, fine-tuning their delivery to best accentuate the virtues of their message without altering their unique voice. I delight in attaining succinctness through varying word choice, eliminating unnecessary distractions, and ensuring that the story’s sense of place and time is clear and easy to follow.
