I work full time as an Editor for C&T publishing. I have a background in children's book publishing, and am also a traditionally published author in both fiction and non-fiction. I graduated from the University of Chicago with degrees in both English Literature and Visual Arts.
It's my job to find stories and artists with potential and help their authors bring them to fruition. I love working with writers 1-1 to improve their work, whether that's delving into the big picture themes and structures, or breaking things down at the sentence level.
I can also offer publishing consulting, and edit and offer critique from a traditional publisher/editor's perspective. As a published author as well, I am great at relating to both sides of the editorial experience.
I specialize in picture books, and also have experience working with graphic novels, middle grade novels, chapter books, and young adult novels. My visual arts background also helps me to shape writing that is meant to be paired with illustration.
Please feel free to reach out with any questions!
I conceptualize, acquire, develop, edit, and write instructional craft book content. I am the editor and project manager for more than 15 books a year, working with the production and design teams to create inspirational and instructional books.
