With every author I work with, my goal is to help them create a book that is true to their voice. At the end of the journey, when they are recording their bestselling audio versions, they can relax knowing the text has their rhythm, language and point of view. Fans respond to that authenticity, and the quality of the work ensures a larger platform for the author.
After surviving this bowl cut and graduating from Wesleyan University, I started work at POZ, an advocacy/lifestyle magazine for people with HIV. POZ was called “easily as plush as Vanity Fair” by the New York Times, and “literate and provocative” by the Los Angeles Times. I then took that spirit to wemedia.com, which was a site focused on providing an outlet for people with disabilities to tell their own stories.
Taking a break from medical writing, I was a founding editor of Radar, the brainchild of the brilliant Maer Roshan. Radar was hailed as “the launch of the year” by the New York Times.
In 2003 I started work at Us Weekly. I was immediately hooked on the immediacy of genre, and for better or worse, helped celebrities ranging from the Kardashians to the Royal Family brand themselves. There I learned how to write for a mass audience, and do it quickly.
Now I have the gift of helping people tell the important stories they need to tell.
