Additional Interests

I am very interested in the coming revolution in publishing and the advent of ebooks. I am passionate about the written word.

In addition to editorial work, I am a published writer myself. I also run a writing critique group in New York and have acted as municipal liaison—a volunteer event-coordinator position—for National Novel Writing Month.

I want to see writers succeed and therefore want to help them polish manuscripts to get them ready for publication. Even if you’re not published, you can contact me to discuss rates for editorial work.
