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. 


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.

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

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 under the ‘writing’ tab under ‘Extras’.


I co-blog over at Read.Sleep.Repeat. where I review books, ramble about books, and all that fun stuff.
