I am a graduate from Brigham Young University with a degree in English Literature and editing. There, I learned everything from where to place a comma to pacing to layout and printing. I have edited and written for the New Era, an international faith and family magazine, as well as working for Inscape, BYU’s creative writing journal.
Since graduating, I have started working as a contracted acquisitions editor for North Star Editions and its YA and MG imprints, Jolly Fish Press and Flux Books. I also work part-time as a copy editor for a marketing company, where I’ve learned the ins and outs of online marketing.
Books are my passion. I want to help produce books that will touch the lives and hearts of their readers, as so many have done for me.
