"Working with Sandy has been - and will definitely continue to be - the best of the best. She's organized, timely, mind-blowingly thorough, and wholly dedicated to getting every project to The Next Level. She doesn’t miss a thing and her ideas, suggestions, and contributions are consistently insightful and spot-on. She’s an editor PLUS-PLUS-PLUS - invested, creative, and wholly invaluable."

I perform all levels of editing, including copy, line, and developmental, for a broad range of publishers and independent authors. Some of the clients I've worked with are: Bloomsbury; Chicago Review Press; Little, Brown Books for Young Readers; Soho Press; Penguin Putnam Books for Young Readers/Viking Children’s Books; Simon and Schuster; Pearson/Prentice Hall; Random House Children’s Books; Roaring Brook Press/First Second; Kirkus Editorial; Page Street Publishing; et al.
I parlayed my experience as a successful food blogger and cookbook editor into a position as executive pastry chef. That led to writing recipe content and culinary articles for clients like SheKnows, Plum Deluxe, Chef's Best, and Meredith/Better Homes and Gardens. I worked one-on-one with clients in conceptualizing cookbooks, providing recipe writing and testing, and platform building.
I acted as project manager, overseeing the list of foreign language titles in translation. I also performed content editing, copy editing, and proofreading, and I wrote back cover, flap, and advertisement copy for a catalog of academic titles that included textbooks and monographs.
