The EdenEcho Story

My name is Amanda Berthault, and as a published author of several short stories and a professional editor since 2016, I have a passion for the written word. But I also have a passion for music, so it was only natural to bring a little touch of music love to my business name. (Google and enjoy!)

My editing career began at an indie fiction publisher specializing in science fiction and fantasy, but I soon branched out into working with independent authors. I enjoy reading a variety of genres, and write in the contemporary and urban fantasy genres.

Located in suburban Chicago, I live with my husband, twin daughters, and three cats.

What Genres Do I Edit?

Literary fiction

Science Fiction

Fantasy (high, low, and urban)




Historical fiction

Pulp/New Pulp


Young Adult fiction

Comics/Graphic Novels

Creative Non-Fiction such as memoirs and autobiography

In general, genres such as steamy romance, erotica, horror, and religious subjects are not a good fit for me.

Education and Credentials

BA with honors in Creative Writing from Columbia College Chicago, 2006
