Hi, I’m Shelly – editor extraordinaire and exclamation mark enthusiast!

Hello and welcome to my site! As an editor, librarian, and general book enthusiast, I tend to rant on the internet and read way too much. Stick around to learn about me and the services I offer!


I offer my editing services on a freelance basis to both individuals and businesses. My experience is in published poetry, manga scripts, general fiction, blog posts, and more. To learn more, check out my services page or contact me directly.

I am the Managing Editor of Chapbooks for an indie literary publication called The Soap Box. We work to feature short stories, poems and more. Submissions open every few months and we welcome both short stories and poetry. I work with authors to produce a short collection of their work, with my main expertise being in poetry.

Book Recommendations

I’m currently curating my Bookshop profile and will be posting various recommended reading lists there. Bookshop is a book-buying platform where every book sale supports an independent bookstore in your area and any book bought off my link will give me a small commission as well.

Writing (Professional & Fiction)

I’ve written some fictional short stories as well as a few guest posts related to books. Professionally, I have authored a few readers advisory posts for a public library system. These can all be found on my Writing page.


I co-blog over at Read.Sleep.Repeat. where I review books, ramble about books, and all that fun stuff. While the blog is not as active anymore, it holds a great archive of over 500+ book reviews and posts that share bookish fun.
