I am an independent writing coach, developmental editor, copy editor, and writer with seventeen years of experience in book and magazine publishing. I collaborate with authors at all skill levels to help them develop well-written, publishable manuscripts.
I have worked on four hundred titles in a wide range of fiction and nonfiction genres for She Writes Press, Warner Coaching, Seal Press, Counterpoint Press, Amazon Publishing, and numerous other imprints. Formerly, I was the managing editor of Juxtapoz art magazine and editor of the women’s lifestyle website DivineCaroline.com, as well as an art and travel writer for San Francisco magazine, Sunset, and LA Weekly.
I have a bachelor’s degree in English and American literature and language from Harvard University and a copyediting certificate from UC Berkeley. I blog about grammar and storytelling for She Writes and recently completed my first novel.
