I specialize in commercial fiction of all genres for both adult and young adult, particularly science fiction and fantasy, but also thrillers, romance and supernatural/horror. I do select narrative non-fiction as well. I'm known for my editorial skills as a story editor in particular. I also offer publishing/marketing consulting--need to improve your social media profile or marketing plan, build a compelling query and pitch? I can help.
