Overview


Even when I'm not actively editing them, I like to be there for my authors, because I know that the job never stops. I'm available for any questions during any part of the process. Brainstorming, title choosing, what kind of promos to run, anything. I'm a content editor who has edited a vast number of fiction and nonfiction books, for both bestsellers and debut authors alike, and I've also done digital design on a large number of both fiction and nonfiction books, from highly complex cookbooks to the more simple novel.

I specialize in the following genres: romance, fantasy, sci fi, horror, young adult, mystery/crime, thriller, suspense, women's fiction, magical realism, narrative nonfiction, memoirs (I especially loves cookoirs!). A smattering of the books I've worked on can be found below!

Testimonials:
"Parisa is smart, thorough, and fantastic to work with. Love her!"
— Susan Hatler, New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author

"Parisa is a brilliant editor. She excels at understanding the story I'm trying to tell and pinpointing the exact areas where I need to make changes without changing or undermining my voice. She is also a pleasure to work with - she communicates quickly and clearly, and she always meets her deadlines. She has become an integral part of my writing process, and I can no longer imagine finishing a book without her help."
—Sara Ramsey, Golden Heart winner and author of the Muses of Mayfair series

"Having worked with a number of editors over the years, I've come to realize how important it is to have one who is both technically adept, in addition to being willing to understand and support an author's vision. Parisa excels at both. While passionately advocating for what's best for the story, Parisa communicates in a clear, professional manner. She's a joy to work with and I'd be lost without her."
— JB Lynn, author of the bestselling Neurotic Hitwoman series
