As a copyeditor and proofreader with Macmillan (St. Martin's Press, Tor, Picador), Simon & Schuster, and Vintage Books since the mid-1990s, I've worked with hundreds of authors, including Augusten Burroughs, Liane Moriarty, Brian Doyle, Anita Hughes, Jackie Collins, and the estate of Robert Ludlum. I've worked on a variety of genres, but my favorites are literary fiction, women's fiction, thrillers, memoir, and trade nonfiction.

Authors have remarked on my ability to keep straight scores of details while staying true to their unique voice. I don't try to fix or improve your style. Instead, I attempt to embody your vision, chipping away at whatever doesn't support it and enhancing what does. Author Brian Doyle wrote, "Susannah, thanks for your close careful respectful understanding gentle sharp-eared sharp-eyed work on my books. I cannot easily explain how much it matters to me to have a copyeditor who is not interested in rewriting me, in editing me, in proving that he or she is good at the job by making changes that need not be made. I am really really grateful for your terrific work.”

Writers are my tribe, and helping them tell their stories is my life's work. I would be honored to collaborate with you.
