Once upon a time I was a senior editor at Harlequin/HarperCollins (action/adventure, dystopian, fantasy, sci-fi, clean romances and sexy reads)...
As an editor and writer with extensive experience in books and magazines, I believe good editing is about recognizing patterns–intentional and unintentional–and helping to focus the highest-impact page-turner of a story possible.
Can't wait to knock the cats off my keyboard and dig into an edit!
