I've also brought a number of new age/spirituality titles to market, including The Complete Guide to Astrology (Louise Edington), Astrology for Relationships (Jacob Register), Modern Spirituality (Benjamin Decker), The Complete Book of Moon Spells (Michael Herkes), and many more.
I specialize in business, memoir, true crime, self-help, mind/body/spirit, psychology, and health and wellness. I also hold a Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from Hunter College. I have a strong eye for language, manuscript organization, and content development, and look forward to working with you to help make your project a success.
At Callisto Media, I oversaw the writing and editing of up to ten nonfiction books at a time at varying stages of development, from initial idea to final manuscript, in the categories of new age spirituality, self-help, psychology, health, and more. I guided the structure and content of books during the writing process, and edited manuscripts, often entailing heavy rewrites.
At Diversion Books, I acquired and edited 15-20 new titles per year in the categories of true crime, self-help, business, management, health, and narrative nonfiction. I worked directly with authors to shape content on all acquired titles, and also crafted cover and marketing copy.
As an Editor at Diversion Books, I acquired and edited 15-20 new titles per fiscal year across a range of nonfiction and commercial fiction genres, including business, management, psychology, self-help, true crime, mystery, thriller, and romance. I worked closely with authors to shape content on all acquired titles, from large-scale developmental edits to nitty-gritty proofreading. I also crafted cover and marketing copy and solicited blurbs for all forthcoming publications.
John Wiley and Sons
As an Associate Editor at John Wiley and Sons, I edited, and managed 15-20 new trade business books per fiscal year in the categories of business management, leadership, sales, startup fundraising, and more, working with category leaders like Jeb Blount and Peter Block. I coordinated creative, publicity, and marketing efforts with authors, and maintained project budgets and timelines across a heavy frontlist.
