I also provide quality control through all stages of the production process, communicating with graphic designers, art director, and marketing strategists on all aspects of content and design of products.
I am currently a Production Editor for an independent fictional writer with several best-selling, published books. I have experience editing science fiction and fantasy, mystery/thriller, and young adult novels.
Over the past eleven years, I have worked with individual writers, college professors, and publishers. I have an extensive background in the social sciences.
