I am a bibliophile with 14 years of experience in fiction and nonfiction publishing. I began by editing college papers and have had my cursor in everything from war tanks to gardens, earth spirituality to astrology of the stars, humorous amateur sleuths to hardened police procedurals. Clients include Midnight Ink, Motorbooks, Quayside Publishing, and Voyageur Press. Books are my passion, and helping authors make their vision a reality is what drives me every day. I know how important your book is to you, so I follow the watchwords of Carefulness, Transparency, and Flexibility.
When I'm not editing, I can be found at the library with my daughter, hunting down new finds, or reading while my better half watches sports.
