Welcome to Write Divas, where your book is our business.

Congratulations, you’ve done it! You’ve written a book—devoted countless hours planning, nurturing, and polishing your creative genius. Now what?

Well, that’s where Write Divas comes in. At Write Divas, we take your masterpiece and add our own brand of fabulous to it. We assess, edit, and proofread your manuscript until it is ready for publication.

The editors at Write Divas specialize in fiction, and only fiction. We have edited several best-selling novels, understand the e-book market, and can provide the necessary guidance and feedback to help you achieve your publishing goals. Write Divas offers professional proofreading, copy editing, content editing, manuscript assessments, and targeted feedback designed to polish your manuscript, novella, or short story.

With the increase in self-publication, many authors believe that spell check will catch the majority of the grammatical issues that plague today’s manuscripts, but spell check can’t compete with an established editor’s trained eye for detail and won’t catch homophones, misused words, use of the wrong words, missing words, repetition, or inconsistencies in continuity. Not only that, Write Divas can show you the strengths and weakness of your manuscript, give you feedback on plot and pacing, provide characterization guidance, and so much more. A simple word-processing program can’t offer that!

And here at Write Divas, we want to help you make your book fabulous.

If you have questions or feedback about our site, please fill out the contact form or send us an e-mail at contact@writedivas.com/old

An avid genealogist, she managed a staff of genealogists for a genealogy research company. As editor in chief, she oversaw editing and acquisitions for a small publishing house and managed a staff of freelance editors.

She is the mother of two teenagers and is married to her own personal Mr. Right. When she’s not editing, promoting or reading the latest hit, this former ski bum and volleyball enthusiast enjoys boating and hiking with her family in Northern Utah. Those that know her personally will tell you that her sense of humor is very dry. So she has no one to blame but herself for the sarcastic children living in her house.

Her love of reading and writing, combined with her incessant need for things to be grammatically correct, drew her to editing, and for the last two years, she’s been editing anything from contracts and press releases to short stories and full-length novels—first as a freelancer and then as staff editor for a small independent publisher.

Currently, Jen is CFO and a founding Diva for Write Divas and specializes in manuscript evaluation and development, content editing, and copyediting. As CFO, she oversees all aspects of financial reporting, including budgeting and forecasting, to provide a stable environment for the author and staff alike.

When she’s not crunching the numbers, Jen is a mom to two beautiful and talented girls. Married for fourteen years, she and her family live in the northern suburbs of New York City with one very loud, very fluffy cat and two beta fish. In between dance team practices and Girl Scout meetings, Jen likes to relax with a good book, catch a movie with some friends, and spend time with her large extended family.

Jen has worked on books by such authors as: Alexandra Allred, Lissa Bryan, T.M. Franklin, Jennifer Schmidt, M.A. Stacie, and Mary Whitney.
