As noted on the home page, I worked for many years on the "other side of the desk" as an acquiring editor. I was lucky enough to work at several wonderful houses with amazing colleagues and authors like Ken Blanchard, Aaron Elkins, Bethenny Frankel, Antwone Fisher, Peter Ames Carlin, Dan Rather, Ira Berkow, and even LL Cool J. Generally speaking, my wheelhouse is what would be called commercial non-fiction and fiction, and I've carried my experience as an editor to my agency's client list. That involves the "p" word -- platform -- and the tools an author might have to help a publisher reach the target audience. eBooks and social media have made the direct to reader relationship all the more important. That said, it's always about great books, books that are informative, helpful, and entertaining, and I never saw a rule in this business that wasn't made to be broken. If I think I have the skill set to help an author bring his or her book first to publishers and then to readers, I will gladly put myself forward as a representative. You can see a partial client list on my client pages, there's plenty more in the works, and thanks for taking the time to read up on me and my business. If you'd like to be in touch, don't hesitate to use the contact page and I look forward to hearing from you.
