Nancy Cushing-Jones – Editor

I have edited non-fiction and fiction books across a variety of genres including contemporary fiction--even books filled with fun.


I have been providing content editing, copy editing and brand assessment services to authors for 35+ years while working in the publishing industry. While President of Universal Studios’ MCA Publishing Division and subsequently as co-founder of Broadthink, I have edited every genre from novels to non-fiction books and YA books.
I truly enjoy being part of an author's team to help add an additional layer of polish to your story--and to have some fun along the road to your success. I have been working with writers in filmed entertainment and publishing for years and have developed a reputation as a trustworthy and professional editor story consultant. I very much look forward to helping you achieve your goals.

Work experience

NCJ Publishing Services, a division of Creative Projects Group

Mar, 2018 — Present

I assist in the development of social impact entertainment and also provide content editing, copy editing, and branding assessment to authors of novels and children's books. I have been editing books since March 2018 when I began offering freelance editing services.


Jan, 2002 — Present

As one of three founding partners at Broadthink, a branding and marketing and new business development company, I worked directly with a wide range of clients, including the best selling author Dean Koontz, the award-winning actor John Lithgow, and major companies such as Paramount Studios, Scholastic Books, and Random House. I assisted in the development of arts and crafts books for parents to enjoy with their children for John Lithgow, which were published by Simon & Schuster. I also assisted Dean Koontz in developing a variety of children's books and a self-help book for adults that were written by his dog, Trixie! I have edited a range of both fiction and non-fiction books since founding Broadthink in 2002, including the novels and non-fiction titles listed below.

Feb, 1979 — Dec, 2001 (almost 23 years)

I ran the division of Universal Studios that developed, packaged and sold to publishers around the world books that were based on or inspired by Universal Studios' feature films and television productions. I worked with all of the executives, producers, directors, and principal actors based at Universal during my 23 years running this division. I also edited the various books developed during my 23 years at Universal.
