Books (fiction, nonfiction, children's and young adult, adult), educational materials


I am a copy editor and proofreader with more than fifteen years of experience. I am also on the Executive Board of ACES, the Society for Editing, and on the Advisory Council of Conscious Style Guide. Prior to starting my own freelance business, I was an in-house copy editor or senior production editor at Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group and Little, Brown Books for Young Readers; Weekly Reader, which published educational magazines for children; and the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Among the books I’ve copyedited are three Caldecott Medal winners, a National Book Award finalist, a Printz Honor Book, a Sibert Honor Book, a New York Times Best Illustrated Children’s Book, and numerous New York Times bestsellers.

I specialize in copyediting and proofreading children’s and young adult fiction and nonfiction books, but I have also worked on nonfiction and fiction titles for adults. My clients include book publishers such as Hachette Book Group, Macmillan, Penguin Random House, Bloomsbury, Time Inc. Books, and Lee & Low Books, as well as independent authors and clients.
