Overview

I'm a full time editor of nonfiction and fiction books with over twenty years of experience in writing, editing, and copyediting across a wide range of categories. From new age, self-help, humor, poetry, and biographies to graphic novels, educational workbooks, puzzle books and picture books for children, I'm always eager to dive in to something new. I'm determined to ensure that every manuscript in my care lives its best life and reaches its audience in all the right ways. The writing and ELL teacher in me wouldn't dare leave you feeling diminished or overwhelmed by an onslaught of critique. My goal will always be to work collaboratively, lend support where and when it's needed, and keep you moving forward with a deep sense of pride in what you've already accomplished.

Work experience

Senior Editor

Hollan Publishing
August, 2015 – Present (about 7 years)

I work as an editor and curator of creative content at a unique book packaging company specializing in highly-marketable, on-trend fiction and nonfiction content. When I'm not proposing book ideas, searching for the perfect author, or editing a manuscript in development, I manage the work flow of up to 30 titles ensuring that quality content is delivered on schedule to our publishing partners. I enjoy supporting first-time and experienced authors and working with freelancers to create graphic novels, guided journals, cookbooks, Christian books, poetry books, humor, and educational workbooks that readers will love.
