I love words — and writers.

And I have been working with both for more than 25 years as a magazine, book, newsletter and wire service editor. 

Since January 2004, I've helped hundreds of authors, publishers, and literary agents with manuscript evaluations, book proposals, content editing, copy editing, and coaching.

My experience includes:

  • Nearly five years as editor of Writer's Digest magazine and associated publications and projects, including competitions judging

  • Two years with Thomson Financial Publishing, where I wrote magazine and newsletter articles and edited a newsletter and line of books about the smart card industry

  • Experience as a publishing manager with Macmillan Computer Publishing

  • Eight years with Advertising Age magazine, including two years as managing editor, the second in command position at the international weekly magazine of marketing

  • Nine years as a writer and manager with United Press International
