It is my honor and pleasure to help authors find their voice, tell their story, and convey their unique ideas.
I became an independent editor after spending a decade at Clarkson Potter/Penguin Random House and beginning my career at ReganBooks/HarperCollins. Over the past fifteen years, I have developed and/or edited books by critically acclaimed and bestselling authors including Frances Mayes, Deborah Needleman, The Kitchn and Apartment Therapy, Blackberry Farm, Ciao Bella Gelato, TheKnot.com, Wally Lamb, Neil Strauss, Emily Henderson, Celerie Kemble, Alexa Hampton, Aerin Lauder, Thom Filicia, Liv Tyler and Dorothea Johnson, Bernie Mac, Carolyne Roehm, and Todd Oldham.
As a freelance editor and writer, I develop book concepts; provide manuscript consultations; edit and co-write proposals and manuscripts; and offer select project management services. My clients include authors (whether they are self-published, traditionally published, or beginning their journey), agents, and publishers.
Areas of expertise: lifestyle books including decorating, cooking, personal style, and advice/how-to/reference; personal and celebrity memoir; nonfiction narrative/general interest; literary and commercial fiction; co-writing and ghostwriting.
