* At Avalon Books, I started as an Assistant Editor before becoming an Editor. I acquired, edited, and produced 30-60 titles annually. We published books geared for the library market: romance, mystery, and western genres. My boss, Erin Cartwright-Niumata and I worked with romance authors in the beginning of their careers. The most famous is Carolyn Brown, who is a top seller on the romance charts these days. Lisa Mondello and Nancy J. Parra are also now USA Today and New York Times bestselling authors.
* Managed freelance staff of copyeditors, proofreaders, and artists.
* Attended national writing conferences to give speeches and sit on panels
* I worked for the Hospitality, Tourism, and Culinary Arts Department. We produced books for the professional chef like Professional Cooking by Wayne Gisslen.
At Leisure Books/Love Spell, I worked with authors like Connie Mason, Leigh Greenwood, etc. and the genres of Romance, Horror, and Westerns. I evaluated manuscripts, worked with authors, and wrote back cover copy. Our book covers had Fabio on the cover!
