For five of my six years with Pegasus, the company's crime imprint was my focus—I love a good mystery! I've worked on a number of subgenres, including neo-noir, more traditional mysteries, and cozy crime, and have had the pleasure of working with fantastic authors like Antony Johnston, William Boyle, S. J. Rozan, Paul Vidich, and Molly MacRae.
On the fiction side, I've also worked on a number of historical fiction projects and select graphic novels. No matter the genre, I'm open to both standalone projects and books in a series. In the nonfiction realm, I've worked on narrative history, biography/memoir, and true crime projects. You can see my full list of projects below.
For nearly two years after my time at Pegasus, I was the novel acquisitions lead and an original novels editor at Tapas Media, acquiring, developing, and editing serialized fiction mostly in the romance and fantasy genres. As of late June 2022, I am now an editor with the Epic Ink imprint at Quarto, working on nonfiction books in the pop culture and entertainment categories.
My reading interests at home are a bit broader than the Pegasus list allowed, so I'd also love to work on science fiction and fantasy manuscripts. I'll read anything having to do with spies, royalty, or Hollywood, real or imagined, and, as an enormous comics nerd, I also enjoy a good superhero tale.
I'm looking forward to hearing your story!
