About Linda

After graduating from Yale University with a B.A. in English (cum laude), I have worked as an editor for the last thirty-plus years. I have helped authors at all stages of development and editing, and my goal is to polish your work-so that it is in the best shape possible for submission to agents, publishers, contests, or for self-publication.
