I've worked in the publishing industry for more than twenty years, currently through my editorial consulting company, FoxPrint Editorial, helping authors hone their work to a tight polished draft. As a developmental editor I work both directly with authors as well as through major publishing houses. As a freelance copyeditor and proofreader, I've worked with major New York publishers, among them Random House, the Penguin Group, and HarperCollins. I hold a BA in English Literature from GSU and am a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association. I've worked on titles by New York Times best-selling authors and manuscripts for unpublished writers, single titles as well as entire series. Editorial clients include bestseller Sherry Thomas and Sarah Bird; and as a copyeditor, Jennifer Weiner (Goodnight Nobody), Chuck Palahniuk (Pygmy, Tell-All), Pat Conroy (My Reading Life, Death of Santini), Walter Mosley (Parishioner, Little Green), Sylvia Browne (The Mystical Life of Jesus), Jim Butcher (Dresden Files series), Geraldo Rivera (The Great Progression), J. R. Ward (Black Brotherhood series), "the Blogess" Jenny Lawson (Let's Pretend This Never Happened), and Perez Hilton (Red-Carpet Suicide), among hundreds of others.
