    I'm a book publishing and media specialist with over 30 years experience copyediting, proofreading, ghostwriting, and marketing successful nonfiction books. My greatest joy is helping an author craft the perfect book for their brand. I am equally skilled at shaping a book from idea to page; doing developmental and/or copyediting or proofreading at any stage; and brainstorming and storyboarding infographics, compelling charts and tables, and/or more whimsical or informative illustrations. I have extensive connections to excellent photographers, illustrators, and graphic designers, and can help you navigate finding and working with the right professional as needed. As a longtime publisher who has spent time on the other side of the desk, as it were, I know what makes a compelling proposal if you wish to catch the eye of a literary agent or trade publisher. For self-publishers, I work with professionals who can help to take your book from manuscript to printed copies. I have helped to develop four New York Times bestsellers with first-time authors, and shaped dozens more highly successful "category killer" nonfiction titles in topics ranging from cookbooks to popular science to style and beauty to outdoor survival. My expertise encompasses many fields, including: • Project development • Developmental editing • Copyediting • Project management • Proofreading • Ghostwriting (wide range of topics, from memoirs to art to outdoor living and more) • Writing and conceptualizing sales and marketing collateral • Consulting with small publishers in fields including: acquisitions, list-building, growing team of editors, illustrators, photographers, and/or designers. I can connect you with the right external professionals and handle briefing, corrections, and more.
