Fiction and nonfiction
I edit fiction and nonfiction, magazine and newspaper articles, book proposals, educational and promotional materials, business documents, and website copy. I have experience with adult, children's, young adult, and new adult literature; travel, memoir, self-help, and how-to books. I work with writers at all editorial stages: before submission, at the revision stage, and after acceptance for publication.
Recent editing projects include book proposals and queries; literary fiction; genre fiction including crime, fantasy, and women's fiction; young adult literature; memoir; and short stories. I am especially appreciated for respecting a writer's individual style, keeping voice and tone intact; and for providing what one of my clients called "the whole package—editing, content suggestions, formatting ideas, education on styles, and more."
I am a graduate of NYU with bachelor's and master's degrees in English. I continued my professional studies at the NYU Center for Publishing and Graphic Design, and taught English before becoming a full-time freelance editor more than ten years ago.
