Overview

Reviews (2)

I'm a professional editor with a lot of experience in Kids, YA, and Licensed Publishing. After over ten years with DC Entertainment, especially within the Batman Group, I'm looking to expand outwards into the greater publishing world. I know how to grasp the core essence of a concept and help the writer bring that out in the clearest, best voice possible. And for those interested in illustrated work, I bring a strong eye for design and visual storytelling to the table. The manuscript is a fabulous puzzle waiting to be solved, and I'm here to be your cheat sheet!

Rachel provided great suggestions for improving my story and was thorough in finding grammar and style issues with the text. She was very professional and I could tell that she closely read my novel and wanted it to be the best it could be. Also, Rachel has great communication skills; it was always easy to reach her with questions and to discuss how best to improve problem areas.
