I worked with high profile licensors like DC Comics, Mojang (Minecraft), and Sega to create coookbooks and other licensed projects. It was a blast, but I missed working directly with authors so I returned to freelancing.
Quirk Books pioneered mashup fiction by publishing Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. While there I worked with first time writers as well as published authors like Grady Hendrix (My Best Friend's Exorcism, The Final Girl's Support Group), Doogie Horner (Die Hard Christmas), and Carol Liefer (Seinfeld, the Larry Sanders Show). I edited licensed projects (the William Shakespeare's Star Wars series), comics related projects (League of Regrettable Superheroes, Spectacular Sisterhood of Superheroes), kids' books (the Nick and Tesla series), a YA novel (Garrison Girl) and a few books that defy categorization!
I've freelanced for extended periods of time in between staff jobs. Past clients included Men's Health, Prevention, Health, Psychology Today, Mental Floss, Parenting, and White Wolf Publishing. In 2022 I've edited a slew of self-improvement and wellness titles for Rockridge Press (Callisto Media) on topics including self-esteem, intuitive eating, stoicism, energy healing, witchcraft, and medicinal plants. I've also done developmental editing for private clients who've written memoirs, science fiction, and thrillers.
