I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelors of the Arts in English Literature and have worked in the publishing industry ever since. I currently acquire books in the Physical Sciences (Physics, Astronomy, and Earth Sciences) at Princeton University Press. In my day job, I provide editorial support for scholarly authors, and I work on a variety of books aimed at researchers, students, and the general population alike. While at Princeton Press, I have supported authors of over 100 peer-reviewed books in the following disciplines: Natural History, Biology, Neuroscience, Physics, and Astronomy. Prior to this, I worked as writing tutor at the University of Virginia, where I edited undergraduate and graduate students' writing across all genres. I can offer the perspective of an acquiring editor at a world-renowned University Press, who brings years of experience drafting/negotiating book contracts and working with agents. I have a keen sense what makes a book proposal attractive to a publisher, particularly in the non-fiction space.
To all of my clients, I promise a high level of professionalism, immaculate attention to detail, and prompt, helpful feedback. I am not afraid to be blunt, but I do believe that a good editor must offer encouragement alongside honest criticism. I am comfortable editing across all genres, including non-fiction, technical monographs, contemporary literary fiction, drama, and poetry. In particular, I have soft spots for popular science, speculative fiction, stage plays, and environmental literature. I can work with most word processing softwares - including LaTex.
