Marian Sandmaier, Writer and Book Editor


Book Editing

"A book begins as a private excitement of the mind…."

-- E.L. Doctorow

Writing a book can be an exhilarating adventure—and a challenging one. Support, structure and constructive guidance can be crucial. Whether you're writing for a general or professional audience, I can help you to clarify and develop your ideas, cultivate your distinctive voice, and deeply engage your readers.

My topic specialties are psychology, behavior, relationships and health. I also work with authors who are writing memoirs and with anyone who wants to include a personal dimension in his or her writing. I thoroughly enjoy the process of working with clients to develop their writing until it "sings."
