Turn your first draft into a book you’re proud to call your own.

Developmental Editing, Consultations, and Ghostwriting for Authors

Every writer needs an advocate—someone who provides honest feedback, thoughtful suggestions, and a boost of inspiration at just the right moment. I believe everyone has a story to share. My role is to help writers, both trained and untrained, clarify and tell their stories. I began my career working with pastors and thought leaders who needed editorial support while still maintaining their unique voices. I applied my creative writing background and discovered a new passion: helping others become great writers and storytellers.

Since 2011, I have worked with countless writers on everything from children’s literature to memoirs and spiritual inspiration. I specialize in creative non-fiction, where the writing journey is as much healing as it is an opportunity to teach and share with others.

You have a story worth writing. Together, we’ll transform your work into the book you always knew you could write.

“Writing a book alongside Chelsea was not only joyful and completely professional, but it was also very therapeutic. After interviewing over 20 people, we are so blessed to have found her and we will recommend her in the future to anyone trying to write a book!”
