I'm an editor, designer, and distribution coordinator for Atmosphere Press. While I am our sole children's book editor, my clientele includes several writers of poetry, fiction, and non-fiction as well. I've spent over three years editing, proofreading, and designing dozens of books published and distributed at Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, Target, and Amazon.
I hold an MFA in Creative Writing with a concentration in poetry from the College of Charleston, and a BA in English from the University of Georgia. My work has been published or is forthcoming in the North American Review, Ghost City Review, Hayden's Ferry Review, The Poetry Society of South Carolina, The Shore, Blood Orange Review, and NELLE.
I absolutely love helping writers edit and revise manuscripts to their most polished, refined version, while also ensuring the autonomy and voice of the author remain fully intact. My services range from proofreading to copyediting to extensive developmental editing. I'm happy to operate on any level of involvement and guidance to best help you hone your book into a beautiful and publishable piece of work.

I exclusively edit all of our children's books at Atmosphere Press and work directly with illustrators to design them. I put each children's book together in InDesign and work with authors until they're 100% happy with the final product. My clientele also includes writers of poetry, fiction, and non-fiction.
