Hi, my name is Cheryl and I am a Senior Editor at McGraw-Hill Professional. My career in publishing started 7 years ago as an Editorial Intern at MHP. I was hired on the very last day of my internship and since then, I have worked my way up from Editorial Assistant, Associate Editor, and Editor to my current position as Senior Editor. During that time, I have worked on more than 50 books, including Wall Street Journal bestseller, Fail More; USA Today bestseller, Legacy in the Making; and many more.

For me, collaboration is the most important part of my relationship with an author--and throughout the entire editorial process, this remains my focus. Both of us working together on the same goal will ensure that you deliver the best possible book to readers and I will work with you hand and hand to make sure that happens.
