About Me

I am a professional editor/writing coach with over 20 years of experience in the publishing and media industries. During the span of my career, I have held diverse positions within these industries that have given me a broad perspective on the writing and publishing processes. After spending several years as a literary scout for international publishers and American film companies, I worked as the American editorial director for an independent London-based trade publisher, acquiring, developing, and editing a list of nonfiction books. I am also the author of two nonfiction books, Reading Women and The Love They Lost. My articles, essays, and books have been featured in The Washington PostUSA TodayChristian Science MonitorNewark Star-Ledger, Newsday, TimePeopleCosmopolitanGlamourMarie ClaireBustBitchPublishers WeeklyKirkus ReviewsBooklistLibrary JournalOprah.comFeministing, and Guernica Magazine, among other print and online publications. A graduate of Barnard College and Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism, I live in Brooklyn, New York, with my daughter and two dogs.
