I have more than 30 years experience as an editor at Bantam Books, Simon & Schuster and Crown Publishers, across multiple formats (mass market, trade paperback, hardcover, and digital) where I acquired and edited numerous award-winning and best-selling titles (including those by two First Ladies) across multiple formats--mass market, trade paperback, hardcover, and digital.

I work with publishers, agents, and private clients, editing both non-fiction and popular fiction. I can bring a book from concept to finished project; my services include project development, preparing proposals (both writing and editing), manuscript evaluation and editing, rewriting (light or heavy, as required) and ghosting/collaboration. I work well with organizations, strong personalities, and tight deadlines don’t scare me.

My areas of non-fiction expertise include cookbooks, food and nutrition, diet/health/exercise, parenting, psychology, relationships, self-help, history, popular culture and memoir. I have worked with Bob Greene (Get With the Program! and The Best Life Diet, both New York Times bestsellers), Dr. Pierre Dukan, author ofThe Dukan Diet (New York Times bestseller), Molly Wizenberg, author of A Homemade Life (New York Times bestseller), and Gretchen Rubin, author of Happier at Home (New York Times bestseller); and cookbook authors that include Todd English, Paula Deen, Paul Newman, Molly O’Neill, Marian Burros, and Grace Young.
