I have had the unique opportunity of working in three different aspects of publishing, including a large publishing conglomerate (Perseus Books Group) where I was able to experience and participate in the marketing side of book publishing.
I have also worked in acquisitions at an independent literary agency (Carolyn Jenks Agency), where I read through hundreds of manuscripts and communicated with prospective authors about how to improve their submissions.
Since moving to Los Angeles I've fully devoted myself to this professional freelance editing business! My mission is best summed up by the words of Arthur Plotnik:
"You write to communicate to the hearts and minds of others what's burning inside you. And we edit to let the fire show through the smoke."
