Hi there. I'm Nora, an assistant editor at Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group, where I support two editors with their titles as well as acquire my own. I grew up outside Chicago and attended Skidmore College, where I studied English and American Studies.

I've worked on New York Times bestsellers, New York Times Notable Books, PEN Nominees, Booker Prize finalists, and Indie Bestsellers, among other prizes and accolades. I'm well-versed in both commercial and literary fiction and nonfiction, and very familiar with the editorial processes of the Big Six publishers. At this time I offer developmental editing, editorial assessment, and query letter review. I'd love to help you with your project.
