I'm a book editor with experience in fiction, nonfiction, comics, and poetry. My clients include Penguin Random House, Hachette Book Group, and Algonquin Books, and I previously worked in-house at alternative comics publisher Fantagraphics Books. I've spoken about editing at the American Copy Editors Society national conference and the University of Washington, and I serve on the advisory board of the University of Washington's editing certificate program. I've worked on hundreds of books for traditional publishers, and I enjoy working with self-publishing authors as well. I'm comfortable working on projects in any genre, but I'm especially interested in literary fiction, science fiction, fantasy, and young adult titles.

A wonderful experience working with Janice!! She proofed my screenplay and I was very happy with the result. Detailed and thoughtful notes. She was helpful and a pleasure to work with. Would HIGHLY recommend and would no doubt work with her again.
