I work as an editor for individual authors as well as for institutions. My clients have included Harvard University’s Nieman Foundation, the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University, the Solidago Foundation, and other nonprofit organizations.
I co-edited Telling True Stories: A Nonfiction Writers’ Guide (Plume/Penguin, 2007) with Mark Kramer.
I have served as a developmental and substantive editor for many nonfiction books, including:
• Jeffrey Haas' The Assassination of Fred Hampton, a memoir of a civil rights lawyer (Chicago Review Press, 2009);
• Victoria Vantoch's The Jet Sex, a narrative history about U.S. and Soviet stewardesses (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2013); and
• Greg R. Taylor's Lay Down Your Guns, a book-length profile of a Honduran doctor fighting drug cartels (Leafwood Publishers, 2013).
I was the founder and faculty advisor for Goddard College's BFA literary journal, Duende. I have served on the editorial board of Dollars & Sense magazine, as staff editor for Grassroots International, and on the advisory board for the online literary journal Conversations Across Borders.
