Before making the move to freelance editing, I previously worked in the NYC publishing world as a book editor, acquiring manuscripts and joining forces with authors to develop their books for publication . Working with writers to help make their projects the best they can be and reach the right audience is my passion. I love the wide variety of projects I get to work on as a freelancer, from novels and short stories to cookbooks and how-to books and everything else in between.
