Teaching Writing and Your ‘Naked’ Manuscript
I love to write and craft stories with real-life drama involving characters that readers will remember!
I also love to help other writers and believe strongly in the practice of ‘giving back’ by sharing what you know. I teach a Creative Writing Class for kids who love to write, in the hopes that they’ll be inspired and perhaps even become future authors. I also teach Memoir writing for seniors, showing new writers how to move their life stories to the page.
With these two passions of writing and teaching, I also coach authors and edit manuscripts, reading through a ‘naked script’ and helping a writer enhance the vision of their story by making each chapter, page, and line the best it can be…
If you feel that your manuscript is ready, I would love to work with you. Responsive, attentive and economical, I provide copy and developmental editing. Yet even more importantly, my heart will be with your manuscript while we work together to prepare your book for launch.

“Crystal is a dream: efficient, objective, and gives concise actionable developmental feedback that gave my manuscript the final polish it needed before publication.”
– Kristen Fanarakis, Author of The Debutante’s Guide to Wall Street (due out March ’18)
“Crystal has a way of looking at a manuscript and pinpointing the missing pieces needed to take your book from mediocre to spectacular. She’s fast and detail-oriented. I highly recommend letting her get her hands on your book before you put it in the hands of readers!”
- Jennifer Tubbiolo, Author of The Charleston Conspiracy (due out ’18)
