Overview

I started as a writer. I always knew I wanted to work with books and that was the dream job of dream jobs. Being an author. Well, we fall into things sometimes and I ended up working as a copy editor for a indie periodical while interning at Random House. After a long road of free, hard work I finally broke in and was offered a full time , paying position. I served as an editor for Random House with a focus of Horror and Science Fiction manuscripts as well as United States Historical Non Fiction. Unable to withstand the pressures of New York any longer I returned home to Oregon where I am starting a indie publishing company for digital books and even thinking of trying my hand at literary agent. We'll see. For now, I can offer quality services at affordable rates because I have a client list established.
