[December 2018) As a non-fiction book author, I’ve been working with editors since 1978. Oxford Univ. Press. Univ. of California Press. Johns Hopkins Univ. Press. Yale Univ. Press. In 2009 I started a small imprint, K-Selected Books, which meant: even more editors.
Siobhan is one of the best. I recently worked with her on a massive, non-fiction ms. with loads of endnotes, footnotes, bibliographical essays, and lengthy, quirky bibliography. I told Siobhan I wanted everything to conform to the Chicago Manual of Style. Siobhan was unfazed. She turned this unwieldy tome into something beautiful to read.
She has an amazing talent for keeping her focus as she walks through a forest of information. Nothing seems to escape her eagle eye. Nothing rattles her. Cool. Calm. Cheerful. Within budget. Absolutely professional and discreet. Whereas I, as publisher, had a tempestuous relationship with the author, Siobhan’s was smooth as silk.
I am in awe of her.
