I edit books, write book proposals, and pitch manuscripts to literary agents and publishers. I have close to 40 people under contract with agents or publishers I've found for them. I most recently helped Adam Markel secure the literary agent who conducted a bidding war between Simon and Schuster and two other houses. His book, Pivot, was released March 2016. I also pitch manuscripts at Book Expo America (BEA) and have been very successful in helping non-fiction authors to get book deals at this annual event. Genres I edit and write book proposals for include all forms of non-fiction, such as: business, memoir, Mind-Body-Spirit, self-help, and health. I am passionate about helping people get book deals. A book is more than words on a page - it is someone's dream. I get to help you birth your dream.
