I've worked in publishing for the last 11 years, editing for publishers such as Taylor and Francis Journals, Routledge, Palgrave, the University of Minnesota Press, Yale University Press, and Macmillan, among others. Before I started Best Friends Publishing Services, I was managing editor, and then project manager, for Macmillan Language Learning, working on primary-level projects for the international ELT market. I am on LinkedIn and am a proud member of the EFA, ACES, ASI, and the Northwest Editors Guild. I enjoy editing the following subjects and formats:
English-language-teaching and elementary and high school textbooks
Journal articles, monographs, and dissertations in all subjects
Historical, young adult, literary, and dystopian fiction, thrillers, romance, and fantasy
Creative nonfiction, including how-to, self-help, and cookbooks
I don’t edit memoir, mysteries, and erotic fiction. Sorry!
When I am not editing, I enjoy the hiking year round and skiing in the winter, weightlifting, and reading. 2018 highlights include:
I manned the EFA table at the Portland Book Festival on November 10.
I copyedited a total of 25 academic monographs!
I copyedited and formatted 81 articles in APA style for two psychology journals!
I joined the American Society for Indexing and began their Training in Indexing course.
