Tracy Michael - Editor

Brooklyn, NY

A perpetual dreamer with my head in the clouds, I love fiction for its ability to transport the reader away from the mundanity of the world.

Overview

Freelance editor specializing in literary and genre fiction with particular interest in Romance, Fantasy, and cross-genre works. I look for writing that brings me inside the head of the main character and compelling page-turners with fast-moving plots.
