I’ve been in publishing for more than 29 years, and the last 15 have been devoted to developing and honing my skills as a nonfiction book editor. During my time as senior vice president of Agate Publishing, a well-known independent publisher in Evanston, IL, I edited more than 80 published titles and learned the intricate art of working closely with authors. In 2016, a book I edited entitled Dinner at Home won the International Association of Culinary Professionals Cookbook Award for the Children, Youth, and Family category. In 2015, another book I edited entitled Charcuteria was a finalist for a James Beard Foundation Book Award and a Gourmand award; three other books I have edited have been finalists for International Association of Culinary Professionals Cookbook Awards. I decided to leave my role at Agate to partner directly with publishers, agents, and authors to create beautiful, reader-friendly books. I look forward to learning more about your project and how I can help make it a reality.
