Envision your story with clarity

Your story. Your voice.
More vision.

Authors of commercial fiction, you've come to the right place for support. If you plan to self-publish, I’ll help you figure out who your readers are and how to make your story connect with them. If you'll be pitching to an agent, I'll help you tune your manuscript to publishing industry standards and expectations for your genre.

Whether you’re an emerging writer still assembling your toolkit of storytelling techniques or a seasoned author seeking to solidify your voice, my services are designed to lend clarity to your creative vision.

  • "You need a great and wonderful editor to enhance and embolden the story; I found that with Lisa."—Troy Christensen

  • "She totally understood that this novel is my baby, my first baby, and when we disagreed, which we did a couple of times, we worked together to find a good solution that we were both happy with. We worked together to make my book better."—Sara Stark
