So you've finished a first draft (or maybe a second or third) of your book, and it's time to hire an editor. But what are you really looking for in that person? I believe you want someone who can be many things––a critic, a guide, and a partner who will bring rigor, honesty, intelligence, thoughtfulness, and creativity to the table. I possess those qualities in spades, and would love to help you bring your book to fruition.
I have years of experience as a copy editor for such publishers as Verso, Bloomsbury, Scribner, Pearson and Scholastic. I'm an accomplished, award-winning fiction writer and former Fulbright scholar. Further, I have taught creative writing at the university level for ten years (currently at Pratt Institute, formerly at Brown, and at two colleges in Europe). I excel at giving constructive criticism and thoughtful, detailed feedback. My goal is to help foster a writer's own unique voice––to help you tell your stories in the most effective way possible.
I have no doubt that, with my talent and expertise, I can help you achieve the level of quality you want for your book. I look forward to working with you!
Have done work for McGraw-Hill Education, Scholastic, Scribner, Verso, S4 Carlisle, Cengage/Pearson, Bloomsbury Academic, American Association of Advertising Agencies, Litteraria Pragensia (Prague), Glowlab, Synergy Educational Excursions, many individual clients.
