I started out as a production editor and worked my way up to production manager for social science college and graduate-level textbooks. I enjoyed the production work too much to give it up for more management-focused responsibilities, so I stepped down in order to keep production as my focus. As a senior production editor, I manage manuscripts in the areas of sociology, psychology, political science, communications, criminology, and management — from copyediting to typesetting to proofreading to indexing, and then to press. I work closely with authors and freelancers, in addition to the in-house editorial, marketing, and design teams. I love what I do!
