Writer, Editor & Online Platform Consultant
Kiwi Judy L Mohr is a writer of thrillers, fantasy, science fiction, and non-fiction. She is also a freelance editor with Black Wolf Editorial Services, working on projects from writers around the world. When she isn't writing, editing, or doing something for writing within the local community, she's delving into the crazy world of science and technology. You can follow her crazy adventures on her blog (judylmohr.com) or on Twitter (@JudyLMohr).
Audrey has been a bookworm from a very young age, favoring series because she hates for the story to end and loves exploring new worlds. As errors and inconsistencies seem to jump off the page at her (and she loves helping people), starting an editing and proofreading business seemed a natural next step. She helps writers avoid frustration and gives them back time by doing the editing that is best done by a fresh set of eyes. She helps the writers who are excited and eager to get their story to their audience but want it to be at its very best. Some of her recent projects have included editing several children’s books, a fiction book, and a non-fiction book. She loves that her business name, Hodgepodge Solutions, is a play on her last name. When she’s not reading, she can be found out in the garden, taking a walk with her family, chasing after her daughters, or trying out a new sewing or crochet project.
Writing Coach & Editor
Kate Johnston was born on Cape Cod, and raised in rural New Hampshire where nature and wildlife stirred her imagination. She knew she wanted to be a professional writer when she was about 8 years old and wrote a story about a good wolf. Married with two children, Kate likes to spend her mornings writing YA and Adult fiction. Her work can be found in Wayfaring, Compass Points: Stories from Seacoast Authors, The Greensilk Journal, Wolf Warriors, Northeast Wolf Coalition, and her blog that helps writers one story at a time. Kate has over fifteen years of experience as a writing coach and editor. She motivates writers to take their inspiration to the next level so they can write successfully with confidence, joy, and rumbling creativity. Her areas of expertise include private coaching for writers, story development, developmental editing, and copy editing. She also offers online writing courses and writing guides.
