As my schedule permits, I sometimes help other writers get their work into shape for submission. Over the years I’ve worked with writers who are still dreaming of publication to Edgar award winners who have multiple novels under their belt.

About sallie

I grew up in Nashville, Tennessee, having the good fortune to be raised in a multi-generational family of Southern story-tellers and book readers. In the second grade, I wrote a prize-winning essay about my Chihuahua, Mathilda, and my writing career was launched. My parents gave me a typewriter for Christmas, and I began to churn out one-page mysteries…


Q. You seem like such a nice Southern lady. Where do you come up with all the terrible things you write about?

First off, thank you! I’m delighted that people find me so genteel–my mother would be proud! I am southern, and I try to be nice, but what I am personally has little to do with the stories I tell.
