I’m Chris Nelson, a freelance editor and writer based in Seattle.

I’ve served as a developmental and project editor for over eighty books on numerous subjects, including life-coaching, self-help, psychology, animal welfare, politics and spirituality, as well as memoirs and works of fiction.

My services include:

  • Hands-on, in-depth editing
  • Coaching for writers
  • Ghostwriting


  • Project and book development from start to finish–or wherever you need help along the way
  • Manuscript and project evaluation

I have several years experience as a senior reader at a literary agency and am a writer myself, with essays published in various venues.
