Guiding unpublished writers to successful careers has always been my mission — especially during my years as an editor at Random House.
I know what it’s like on both sides of the editor’s desk. I know what editors look for, and I understand the passion that drives authors, their desire to follow their dreams, and their determination to create their own publishing destiny.
I work with authors at every stage of the writing and publishing process: whether you are just starting out and need help developing your idea, or have a complete manuscript and need a full developmental edit.
Over my 25+ years in publishing, I have nurtured the careers of numerous first-time writers, some of whom have become bestselling authors. I thrive on working with truly committed writers and will push you to be the best writer you can be so that you end up with a book that makes you proud.
