I've had my nose in a book since I was able to read. Books are my passion, my vocation, my obsession, and my hobby. I love to help authors create the best version of their ideas and I've spent over 20 years building the skills needed to do just that. I live near the San Gabriel mountains in southern California with my husband, stepsons, and dogs. My husband is also an editor and writer, and we enjoy road cycling together as a family.
