I'm a development editor and editor and primarily work with narrative nonfiction. I have a background in educational publishing, magazine writing and editing, and writing and editing nonfiction and scripted content for Audible. Four of my Audible Originals have been selected as "Best Listens of the Year." I bring a strong narrative sensibility to my editing work, foregrounding engaging human narratives, bringing out authentic conflict and tension, strengthening themes, and identifying ways to turn niche and/or challenging topics into stories that appeal to a broader audience.
I'm also a New York Times bestselling author and an Emmy nominated documentary television producer. I have an MFA in creative writing and have taught fiction and nonfiction writing at the college level. I've written and edited for magazines, educational publishers, and documentary television.
My customized approach to editing is to support the writer wherever they are in their process. I'm easy to work with, personable, and most of all, I love a great story!
