As a partner to my authors, my editorial approach is to bring out their story, concept, advice, or cause in the best, most compelling way to win over raving fans and enlightened readers. Their words are treasures that should be handled with care yet those same words should be pushed into being far grander than even the author could have intended. I also believe that balance is the key to good editing; sometimes a light hand goes a long way.
These days you will find me leading both a new contemporary Christian imprint and a well-established integrative health line of books for a traditional book publisher. I am actively involved in new author acquisitions and developing compelling book ideas for current authors. I am loving the engagement! My goal remains the same, however, and that is to support my team in a way that adds value to our company as a whole and continue to build phenomenal relationships with our authors and make them want to come back for more.
