With diversified 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 a faculty professional development consultant.
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’re multilingual, I can help polish your English-language work.
Maybe your faculty needs a workshop about the academic publishing process, about how to best assess prospective publishers, and about best publication strategies. I can help with this.
If this sounds like you, I hope you’ll get in touch!
