I am the author of the novel, Don’t Ask; a short story collection, Tell Me a Story, Tell Me the Truth; and several biographies including Midway to China and Beyond. As a writing coach and editor, I have worked on a diverse range of projects: a chick-lit novel by a best-selling novelist, a first-time author’s work of historical fiction, and a G-G winning journalist’s collection of 20 short stories. I have ghost-written the autobiographies of two child survivors of the Holocaust and continue to offer coaching and editorial feedback on memoir-writing.
One-page manuscript critique; full edit; in-person or virtual consultation to discuss feedback; and ongoing coaching.
Short stories, novels, biography, and memoir. Working one-on-one makes for a rewarding relationship and successful results.
Gina is a gifted short story editor. First of all, she knows how to help the writer make characters come alive and sees the details that can be enhanced to make a story sing. She also has good ideas about how to make the narrative line of the story hold the reader.
The idea to write a book about his life, and specifically the many chapters in his business life, was not a new one for my husband, Gary Bromberg. But how to do it? His children…decided to make the book a reality in the form of a gift in honour of their father’s 70th birthday. Gina Roitman was the answer. She was a wonderful choice to give wings to Gary’s stories and portray them in a manner that reflects the man – his character, his sense of adventure and his sense of humor.
…and a special thank you to my final editor, Gina Roitman, who worked to marshal the most important narratives of my writing to produce this cohesive and comprehensive story of my life.
