After editing more than 600 books in 26 years, Patti W. is like a chameleon, able to assume almost any writer’s voice. She specializes in substantive line editing, reworking each sentence for flow and impact. She has edited many books for traditional publishers that required almost a total rewrite, and she was practically a ghostwriter for one book. The author had written down numerous anecdotes from his youthful days that had a lot of wit and humor, but when he later began to compile more stories for his book, he was 81. The publisher gave Patti photocopies of his chicken-scratch notes and snippets of tales that she had to turn into a full-length book. As the author said after reading her final draft, “She sounds more like me than I do.”

Although she is more of an editor than a writer, she wrote an unpublished thriller, a romantic comedy with a writing partner, and a few magazine articles and short stories. She is also writing a children’s book at the moment. But in general, she doesn’t have a burning desire to tell her own stories. She is content to help other people tell their stories (or sell their products, etc.).
