I am a current children’s book editor and former elementary school teacher with a passion for diverse, inclusive, and unique stories. In my day-to-day, I evaluate submissions for acquisition, writing selling and marketing copy, perform developmental and line editing, and shepherd books through the art process.
As an editor, I am quite familiar with what makes a query letter successful and can help you make yours stand out. I specialize in looking at picture books through the lens of finding a successful structure for your story and satisfying emotional arc for your characters through developmental editing. Let me help you find the perfect inroad for children reading your story. When line editing, I help writers find the best way to express their ideas and comb the manuscript for any grammar issues. Let me help you polish your words until they shine. Together we can get your book submission-ready!
