Star-Splitter Editorial Services

Prior to forming Star-Splitter Editorial Services, I was an associate editor at Simon & Schuster. But I started my career in a literary agency, so I've seen the publishing process all the way through, from the germ of an idea that becomes a book proposal to the finished product that lands on bookstore shelves. I'm happy to guide authors through any of the steps along the way: drafting informative and compelling proposals and submission letters, developing and polishing manuscripts, writing marketing copy, and more. I can also provide consultation services, having the kinds of challenging conversations that help authors figure out what is the best way to get their work out into the world.

In addition to my work as a developmental editor, I have also freelanced as a proofreader and copyeditor since 2010, and frequently provide these services to authors who want a professionally produced self-published work, as well as to corporate clients. I speak fluent French and some Spanish, and also lived in Paris and London before making my home in New York.
