Sandra Wendel is a highly experienced book editor who specializes in helping authors write, polish, and publish their nonfiction manuscripts (in the areas of memoir, true crime, consumer health, and business/leadership). She is a consultant on independent publishing as well.
Her greatest joy in editing is working with authors who have a story to tell. She has worked with Holocaust survivors, a Secret Service agent, a bank robber, entrepreneurs, an eighties rock groupie, a homicide detective, funeral home director, real estate agents, chefs, doctors, lawyers, and ordinary people with extraordinary stories.
Her new award-winning book, Cover to Cover: What First-Time Authors Need to Know about Editing, is the result of hundreds of conversations with new, clueless authors. She also shares the authorship of two empowering consumer health books with a physician from Mayo Clinic.
Sandra teaches highly popular continuing education classes at Metropolitan Community College in Omaha, Nebraska, called “How to Write Your Book” and “How to Write Your Story.” She hosts the First-Time Authors Club on Facebook.
