After graduating from Harvard College, I worked at St. Martin's Press, Minotaur Books, Thomas Dunne Books, and Crooked Lane Books, where I published award-winning and bestselling books. I've worked on a wide variety of fiction, from light cozy mysteries to dark crime thrillers; from sweeping historical sagas to bubbly commercial women's; from serious literary tomes to fantastical YA. I love that the editorial process allows me to get to know both an author and his/her characters, as well as the world he/she's created. My favorite part of the job is working collaboratively with an author to bring out the very best version of his/her work.
