I specialize in academic books and journal articles in industrial/organizational psychology, clinical psychology, criminology, and social work; however, I am open to academic projects across all behavioral science disciplines. Drawing on my in-house experience, I can advise on how to tailor proposals for maximum publisher appeal, including writing effective marketing text and shaping your work to target particular audiences. I’m happy to adapt my services based on the needs of your specific project, ranging from a full evaluation of your book’s structure, style, and scope to a shorter consultation on the best way to approach publishers with a manuscript proposal.
My background is in English literature and psychology, and in addition to academic writing, I am equally enthusiastic to take on fiction projects. I am passionate about high-concept speculative fiction, graphic novels, and podcasts/audio dramas, and have experience writing for children’s educational media.
