I will provide an honest, helpful manuscript critique

Greetings, fellow writers!

Thanks for stopping by! If you need an experienced author to beta read and critique your work, then please keep reading.

My name is Gretchen and I’m a published author with numerous stories appearing online and in print. I’ve been editing and critiquing for over 10 years, specializing in all genres of fiction as well as memoir-style nonfiction.

What you’ll get from me:
  • detailed critique
  • thoughtful, creative notes
  • respect for your unique writing style
  • genuine enthusiasm for your project

When crafting my critiques, I use the sandwich method because it highlights your strengths as well as pointing out what needs improvement. The result: honest feedback that doesn’t make you feel two inches tall.

I’m a writer, too, so I know how it feels to stare numbly at rejection letters and wonder what went wrong. But I also know how it feels to finally open that acceptance letter and start dancing to Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way.”

I want you to have your own Lady Gaga moment. To get there, you need honest, quality feedback. If you’re serious about taking your writing to the next level, please contact me for more information, or just hit:
