Overview

I am skilled in bringing together different authors who are typically writing chapters for a medical book as a side project. I can juggle many different tasks and keep my author teams on track in an organized and professional manner.

I have a unique experience, as I spent a few years at a traditional publisher and now work for a fast-paced startup where we are constantly creating and updating material for residents in real-time. I have a passion for managing art projects and thoroughly enjoy working with artists to create book covers. In my current position, I have the freedom to review authors' work, manage them, and offer raises and bonuses for exemplary work.

I pride myself on assisting in the production of beautifully written, well-received, and error-free books. I'm interested in true crime, fiction, and short stories and would love to assist you on your next project.
