I’m a 40-year veteran of the publishing industry. I worked as an in-house editor in the Children’s Department of Harcourt for 24 years–editing picture books, middle grade, and young adult fiction and nonfiction–and transitioned to a contract position when they were bought out by Houghton Mifflin in 2008.As a consulting editor for Houghton Mifflin Harcourt from 2008 until 2019, I focused on young adult fiction. From 2012 to 2018, I also acquired and edited romance and New Adult fiction for Entangled Publishing, working as a Senior Editor and Founding Editorial Director of Embrace, their line of New Adult Fiction. I now work solely as a freelance editor, focusing on middle grade, young adult, romance, women’s fiction, and New Adult for publishers, agents, and indie authors.
