I'm a literary agent, poet, and freelancer, with a sharp editing eye and a knowledge of the current publishing marketplace.
In my current position, I handle short story and essay submissions, as well as evaluate longer work, which means I'm comfortable working with various forms and lengths, and understand what makes these projects successful.
I can bring the expertise of working in the publishing industry to a manuscript. Not only can I hone work editorially, I can help point projects in a direction that is salable. I've seen projects in all stages -- from that first query letter -- to a ready-for-publication work and understand the process. I've worked with NYT and USA Today Bestselling authors.
Being a writer myself has also let me collaborate more effectively with my clients, in terms of making sure that during the editing process, their style, voice, and the direction they want to take their work in still shines through.
One of the reasons I wanted to enter publishing was to help writers like you find their voice and get their talent out into the world. Let's take the plunge together.
I assist the president, Jane Dystel, with many of her projects in all stages as well as maintain a client list of my own (specializing in romance and historical fiction, though I'm actively reading and acquiring in other genres).
