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.

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.
