About Me

Beth Fehlbaum is an English teacher of 26 years, remote instructor/tutor since 2020, and a freelance book editor.
As an educator/tutor, she specializes in working with college students, college-bound high schoolers, At-Risk populations, struggling learners, and people for whom English is a second language.
Beth began her editorial business in 2020, having recognized the need for those she works with to understand the “why” behind the corrections she suggests, and realizing that her experiences as an educator and author makes her both easy to work with and incredibly thorough in both line-editing and developmental notes. Since 2008, Beth has experienced the gamut of publishing outlets: traditional, hybrid, and self.

Beth utilizes her grammar-goddess-like skills to provide editing services, specializing in working with Indie authors of Young Adult, New Adult, and Romantic genres.

Beth is the author of the YA novels Find the MoonBig Fat DisasterThe Patience Trilogy (Courage in PatienceHope in Patience, and Truth in Patience), and co-author of the creative non-fiction book Trauma Recovery: Sessions with Dr. Matt (Ayni Books).
Authenticity and finding one’s voice are frequent themes in Beth’s work, and they are absolutely essential themes in her life, as well.

Beth has a B.A. in English, Minor in Secondary Education, and an M.Ed. in Reading.

Beth is in-demand as an author-panelist, having presented/appeared at the Texas Library Association Annual Conference, the American Library Association’s annual conference, YALSA, N.C.T.E./ALAN, and numerous YA book festivals. She’s a member of The Author’s Guild, SCBWI, the Editorial Freelancers’ Association, Romance Writers of America, and the Texas Federation of Teachers.
She loves doing school visits and meeting teens, teachers, and librarians!

Beth lives in the woods of East Texas in a house on a slice of family acreage. The home was built by her family over one very hot humid summer, a task she wishes never to repeat again. This sanctuary-of-sorts is lined by pine trees, and the woods are inhabited by raccoons, possums, and feral cats.  All of these creatures  appear to  consider Beth their cat-food-providing goddess. There is no place she would rather be.
