B A C K S T O R Y

I started as a book blogger about five years ago with a site called Books and Ravens. After a few years I found myself not as interested in book tags and hauls, and created more writing-focused blog posts. At the same time I discovered a passion for editing and helping other writers succeed. I help edit and give feedback on manuscripts for friends, and found a passion for editing. Books and Ravens is no longer a website, but I still wanted a place to review books. And since I’m training to be a developmental editor, I wanted a place to create posts about writing craft and advice and get my name out in the editing world.

A friend once called me “the random wise witch on the side of the road that tells you your future”. And that’s why I named my blog The Wise Witch. I have a passion for writing craft, storytelling, and giving advice. I’m also training to be a developmental editor. On this blog I analyze and break down stories, provide information to beginning writers, and offer my editing services. I have a focus on fantasy novels, but occasionally break into other genres.
