Maria Tureaud HeadshotA lifetime reader, and passionate writer, I have accrued over twelve years experience as a freelance editor. I love to get my hands on stories that need that next-level push to make them shine, and focus on coaching writers so they might apply our time together to not only their current work, but future projects. Specializing in characterization, internal/external conflict, and voice, I love to help writers balance craft with creativity in order to produce the best possible product.

In 2019 I became an editor for the Twitter pitch event, Revise & Resub (#RevPit), and am a proud member of the EFA (Editorial Freelancers Association).

I edit most genres of fiction across multiple age categories, but I’m especially passionate about historical fiction, fantasy, horror, and underrepresented cultures/mythologies. On saying that, anything with a high concept that showcases strong, grounded characters will capture my heart.
