Our Numbers are Growing

Hello, good people of the page! I'm proud to introduce you to the newest IBGW editor, Estrella Merrill (who prefers to be called Star)! Please take a moment and drop in a comment to welcome Star to the IBGW team. We're excited to have her and her edits are some of the best I've seen. You'll be very satisfied if you choose her to work with you on your manuscript!
My name is Estrella Merrill, but I go by Star. An Arizona resident, I was transplanted from New Jersey. I attended ASU, and graduated with a BS in Nursing. I worked at Gateway Medical Center in Gilbert AZ, as a Clinical Nurse Manager, overseeing  65 beds on two floors and about 45 nurses and nurses aides. Needless to say, the stress got to me, and I'm now doing what I enjoy: writing, and editing works for other writers. I currently have penned 45 stories, all fanfiction, but hope to turn one into the real deal, as it is very personal to me.

I was introduced to fanfiction by my youngest daughter and decided to write some stories myself. It's become an obsession. Along with my own writing, I've had other authors who requested my help with editing. I like to encourage writers, not tear them down. I point out the good features of the story and fold in my opinions on how to make it better; grammatically, and character-wise. I have an eye for dialogue, and can help greatly in that department.

I enjoy most genres especially humor and romance. Mystery is not my cuppa, nor is erotica. Anything else is fair game. Bring it on.

There you have it! Keep your eyes on the blog because I'll be running some awesome contests over the next few weeks!

Until next time, WRITE ON!
