I am a former Senior Editor from Random House with over twenty years of experience in children's publishing, editing middle-grade and young adult fiction and fantasy.
During my time at Delacorte Press and Knopf Books for Young Readers, I was fortunate to work with National Bestselling authors Peter Benchley and Julie Schumacher, as well as on award-winning debut novels. I also edited popular fantasy series by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes, and assisted on novels by acclaimed writers Philip Pullman, Jerry Spinelli, and Christopher Paul Curtis.
When I'm not editing manuscripts, I'm busy sharing my love of reading with my twins. They remind me each day how the best books have the power to enlighten, transform, and inspire us. My favorites are the ones with characters who stay with me long after I've reached the last page, and I'm committed to helping new and established writers alike improve their craft and reach their goals.
