With twenty years of experience in the book publishing industry—first as a publisher’s representative and regional sales manager, then as a university press acquisitions editor—I am a committed advocate for my authors, a highly skilled developmental and line editor, and an accomplished grant writer.

I specialize in scholarly, literary, and crossover projects that transcend the academic-trade divide. As a Spanish-to-English translator and published writer and poet, I have a keen ear for language that balances my background in academia.

How can I help you? Perhaps you need help crafting a winning pitch for your nonfiction book proposal or assistance developing a writing sample for that proposal. Perhaps you’re working to transform your dissertation into a publishable book manuscript. I can help with that. Or, if you plan to submit your novel or short story collection to a contest or writing fellowship, I will evaluate your manuscript and provide recommendations to get your submission contest-ready.

Or maybe you’re looking for someone to create cover copy for your book or white papers, blogs, or other marketing materials for your press or business. Maybe you’re researching funding opportunities and need some help with an application. I can help with that, too.

If this sounds like you, I hope you’ll get in touch!
