About Edit This


Steve Gamel

- President & Owner

Steve is a lover of all things "words" and prides himself on being the best possible storyteller for his clients. A writer with more than 24 years of experience, he got his big break in 1997 when he was hired as a sportswriter for the Lewisville News. From there, he went on to work for the Dallas Morning News before joining Allen Publishing Company in 2004. He has since moved on to write for such entities as the Denton Record-Chronicle and various local magazines.

Steve has been recognized by the Associated Press Sports Editors and Texas Associated Press Managing Editors for articles he's written. Edit This® was voted Best Writing & Editing Service by Best of Denton County in 2015, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022.

Steve graduated from the University of North Texas with a BA in Broadcast Journalism and lives in Denton with his wife, Leslie, and sons, Christian (15) and Jackson (11).

Edit This®  ...

Writing has always been in my blood, but as many people will tell you, it doesn't always pay much. When you are married and then have two small boys, taking a leap of faith and following your heart doesn't always seem like the most prudent choice. But that's what I decided to do with Edit This®, and it was the best decision I ever made in my professional life. With the support of my lovely bride, Leslie, and countless friends and family members, I decided to take that leap of faith and created Edit This® in 2014.

My vision for Edit This® is to provide writing and editing services to small and mid-size businesses as well as individuals while continuing to work as a journalist for area news publications. I like to say Edit This® can handle anything involving the written word. Furthermore, I have a number of business colleagues that I can partner with to provide top-notch professional services, including desktop publishing, graphic design, and printing. This makes for a full-service product and a happy client.

Edit This® works with clients nationwide but is local to anyone in Denton, Corinth, Lake Dallas, Shady Shores, Hickory Creek, Lewisville, Flower Mound, Highland Village, Argyle, and the rest of DFW.
