I’ve been working in the publishing industry since 2000 and have done my time in various roles: technical writer, technical editor, publishing coordinator, quality assurance, DTP, and project management.
For a short stint in Australia, I did grant writing and business development. While there, I started my freelance editing career and for a while worked in acquisitions and as a production editor for Lyrical Press-Kensington Publishing.
These days, I freelance for a large roster of indie authors that I love to death! I also read submissions for Carina Press on the side. (Make sure your synopsis and first three chapters are fabulous if submitting! :-))
My strength lies in romance (all genres), but I also edit women’s fiction and general fiction – suspense, thrillers, science fiction, action/adventure, horror, you name it.
