I edit a wide variety of fiction and nonfiction including but not limited to: novels (literary, mainstream, commercial, adult, young adult, chick lit, street lit, women’s, romance, historical, mystery, thriller, suspense), short story collections, memoirs, self-help, inspiration, pop culture, and New Age. My clients range from bestselling (Daniel Jose Older, author of the New York Times bestseller Shadowshaper) to critically acclaimed  (Natashia Deon, author of Grace, named a New York Times Top Book 2016) to self-published writers (Marcia Smart, author of Decorating by Instinct). While I work with writers of all backgrounds, as one of the few Latina editors in the book business I have extensive experience in Latino and multicultural publishing.

I do not edit children’s books (specifically, anything for the middle grade or younger reader), cookbooks, poetry, science fiction and fantasy, as well as works in Spanish. Below I’ve listed editors who do edit these kinds of writing. Be sure to mention I referred you to them.
