Portfolio

My portfolio represents a sample of work from 18 years as a freelance editor. I also worked in-house for Heritage House Publishing for a couple of years, first as in-house editor and then as editorial coordinator, on all aspects of book production.

Publishing projects

I love shepherding projects from raw content to finished product, from editing to layout and cover design to ebooks (and consulting on distribution and marketing).
