As a coach for writers and self-publishers, and an editor and designer of award-winning books for over 15 years, I'll answer all your questions about how to polish and publish your manuscript. I have worked on books published by “New York Times” bestselling authors and on titles published by Harper Collins, the American Cancer Society, Northfield Publishing, Guernica Editions, John Catt Educational, and others. I coach writers, self-publishers, and start-up publishers on editing and book production, and I have worked on most genres in English, as well as French, German, and other languages.
As an award-winning editor and writer, I was the editor-in-chief and a columnist for "The Blue Review” e-zine for children's writers. I have also had the privilege of serving as a judge in several writing competitions and the delight of conducting workshops for local writers' groups. I have presented at libraries and online conferences and have been interviewed on Internet radio shows and podcasts.
Besides working on books, I was a copy editor for two glossy lifestyle magazines, “La Dolce Vita Magazine” and “City Life.” My memberships include the Bay Area Editors Forum (BAEF), CE-L Directory of Freelancer Editors (Indiana University), Canadian Authors Association, Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), and Adobe InDesign User Groups.
