I got my start as an editor in 2008 when I joined the Chicago North chapter of the Romance Writers of Amerca. As Manuscript Chair, I led critique sessions for New York Times bestselling authors Courtney Milan, Joelle Charbonneau, and Julie James. My work as a freelance editor really took off when I began working with Lorelie Brown. Her novel, Far From Home, became the first lesbian romance nominated for RWA’s RITA™ award.
In 2018, I joined Carina Press, the digital-first imprint of Harlequin HarperCollins. I acquired and edited eight romance novels, including The Girl Next Door by New York Times bestselling author Chelsea M. Cameron and Hour of the Wolf by USA Today bestselling author Dana Marie Bell. My time with Carina Press taught a great deal about the editorial side of the industry and what editors look for when scouting new talent.
Two years ago, I was approached by Pandia Press to edit History Quest: Middle Times, a secular textbook for mid-grade homeschool students. This spring I finished work as project director and content editor for History Quest: United States, available now.
