I am an award-winning editor with 10+ years' experience. Most recently, I worked as the acquiring editor at a YA imprint at HarperCollins where I worked on everything from fantasy to historical, science fiction to romantic comedy, and much more. These days, in addition to editing, I'm also a literary agent and represent everything from picture books to select adult genres.
One of my big drivers is making literature more accessible, and I'd love to work with you to make your story the best it can be! I enjoy working on fantasy, science fiction, romantic comedies, and coming of age books. I love to see magical realism, fantasy, action adventure, and humor. I work on genre fiction for all audiences and ages at any stage of manuscript development.
My editorial style is very collaborative, personal, and coach-like. These stories have lived inside your head a long time, and every writer pours a little bit of themselves into their characters. That's a scary thing, and I'm always sure to be respectful of that. I value collaboration, open communication, and transparency. It’s always my goal to preserve your voice as an author, honor your artistic vision, and make you come away feeling confident by providing specific, actionable feedback and resources for you to take beyond this manuscript alone.
WHO ARE YOU?
I’ve worked with award-winning and bestselling writers who are well-established, and I’ve worked with authors just starting out writing their first novel. I work with authors pursuing traditional publishing and those pursuing self-publishing. Writing is a journey, and I’ve collaborated with authors in a variety of places on their individual writing or publishing journey. Whether it’s your hundredth book or your very first, this is YOUR story and I am here to help you make it great.
