During eleven years at Random House, I acquired and edited upmarket fiction, women’s fiction, historical fiction, suspense, romance, and narrative nonfiction, in addition to advising on trade paperback acquisitions and reading group content. I’ve edited New York Times bestsellers such as The Year of Fog by Michelle Richmond, Homer’s Odyssey by Gwen Cooper, the Nina Wilde/Eddie Chase series by Andy McDermott, and David Gibbins's Jack Howard series, as well as RITA Award winners for Best Historical Romance His At Night and Not Quite a Husband by Sherry Thomas, Thriller Award-winning and Edgar Award-nominated suspense novels by Tom Piccirilli, the critically acclaimed literary novel Butterfly’s Child by Angela Davis-Gardner, What Happened to My Sister by Elizabeth Flock, The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul by Deborah Rodriguez, The Four Ms. Bradwells by Meg Waite Clayton, and Becoming Marie Antoinette by Juliet Grey.
Recent and forthcoming freelance projects include With Love from the Inside by Angela Pisel (acquired by Putnam), Biglaw by Lindsay Cameron (acquired by Ankerwycke and optioned to Paramount), Oil and Marble by SG Storey (acquired by Skyhorse), The Widow’s Guide to Sex and Dating by Carole Radziwill (acquired by Holt), and books by New York Times bestselling indie authors Vi Keeland and Jasinda Wilder and USA Today bestselling author Caroline Fyffe.
In addition to freelance editing for independent authors, agents' clients, and publishers, I taught the Novel Writing Master Class at Mediabistro for five years and currently teach at the Sarah Lawrence Writing Institute.
