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 am happy to say I’m still going strong as a commercial fiction editor.
These days, I work as a freelance production editor for Lyrical Press/Kensington Publishing and freelance for indie authors. My roster includes both, and I give each my equal time and effort.
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.
