In my ten-year editorial career I’ve worked on a wide variety of publishing projects, including trade books, academic references, digital courses, and self-published books.
Currently, as a full-time freelance editor, I focus almost exclusively on nonfiction book projects. I’m a happy omnivore, and I really enjoy working on different genres and topics. I’ve worked on memoirs, essays collections, guidebooks, humor titles, criticism, and educational nonfiction. The subjects have spanned a wide range, including literary history, sports, relationships, race relations, film, and elder abuse.
See below for a list of notable projects I either edited or provided editorial assistance to.
