I'm a freelance editor with five years of experience (four as an employee, one freelance) working at a major NY publishing house, where I acquired, edited, and directed the publication of more than 40 novels. I specialize in genre fiction, especially romance, women's fiction, and mystery, and have edited everyone from self-published authors just getting their start to New York Times bestsellers. Notable authors I have edited include USA Today bestseller Sarina Bowen, RITA-nominated romance author Alyssa Alexander, and NYT bestselling mystery author Krista Davis.

Miss Julie was extremely effective in helping me with whatever it is that I wrote. Not only did she check for spelling, grammar and content errors, but she gave me practical advice about bringing to piece to the marketplace and what to do with it after we had finished working on it together.
