Sara Brady – Editor

I'm a copy editor and proofreader with more than fifteen years of experience editing romance, thrillers, and nonfiction.


I have been editing fiction since 2007 and have worked in the romance, fantasy, mystery, and thriller genres. In nonfiction I have worked on histories, several volumes of RosettaBooks’ reissue of the eight-volume biography of Winston Churchill, and business- and leadership-focused titles. I have worked with several self-publishing authors on honing their manuscripts and getting them into ideal shape for publication. When I'm not reading I enjoy cooking, watching international soccer, and playing with my six-year-old corgi mutt, Rufus.

Sara was my first-ever copy editor, so I wasn't sure what to expect. What I got was a very professional, extremely thorough, and instructive collaborator. I appreciated her work so much, that if I ever get done with my second book, ugh, I would hire her again!
