I still read everything that comes across my desk with the same tenacity as those books I read as a child, and I want to bring that level of excitement and dedication to your story. I know how hard it is to write a book, both because I've written one, and because I've seen the publishing industry from the inside, and I want to do all I can to help make the process just a little less stressful for you. Thanks so much for checking out my profile, and I look forward to hearing from you!

In this position I have worked on a dozen picture book adaptations of classic stories for Starry Forest Books, where I both suggested developmental edits, and provided copy editing services. As for my own clients, I have served as a sounding board for the structure of two memoirs and a novel, along with a collection of essays. With these clients, I have received both bare bones manuscripts and together we have fleshed out the overall content of the story, and I have also received first drafts where I edited for plot development and character consistency, and provided suggestions for where changes and/or clarification could be made.
In this position I worked with New York Times bestselling children's book authors to provide feedback on the construction of their stories, design their book jacket content, and create the first Young Adult coloring book adaptation. Additionally, I reviewed numerous queries and selected stories to recommend for publication. My proudest moments are working directly with Sarah J. Maas on her Throne of Glass and A Court of Thorns and Roses series in an editorial capacity, along with stories from Elizabeth Eulberg and Kamilla Benko.
