Let me tell you about myself.
I have the best job in the world.
As a literary research assistant, I can indulge my twin passions: history and writing.
While I work primarily on books with Georgian or Regency settings, my career as a librarian has prepared me to research any setting, any time period, any location.
I can help you select the proper carriage for a dowager, compose an authentic menu for a dinner for the Prince Regent, furnish a duke’s bedroom (in London or his country estate) or arrange an elopement to Gretna Green. Working with you on your manuscript would be a welcome opportunity to expand my knowledge of medieval Northumbria, or frontier Colorado, or trendy Long Island!
I can also check your spelling and grammar, catch anachronisms, and copy edit your manuscript. I can be that “other pair of eyes” to suggest changes and improvements that will polish your story and make it even more appealing to readers, editors, and publishers.
I have developed this business over the past eight years, working with award-winning, best-selling authors, and authors preparing their first book for publication. I have worked on more than twenty-five books, as well as short stories, extra chapters, and web postings. I can assist you with research while you’re writing, and with fact-checking when you’re done. My job is to help you finish your manuscript using fascinating details and historical touches that will make your romance irresistible and unforgettable.
It is, I repeat, the best job in the world. I have no set hours, no commute, and no dress code. There’s a resident cat, an unlimited supply of tea, and a garden for refreshment and reflection. Won’t you join me there?
