I’m a writer and editor recently repatriated to Watertown, MA, after four fantastic years in Delft, the Netherlands–during which I had the opportunity to explore Europe and dove into travel, food, and wine, while writing both fiction and about the expat experience. I got to Delft by way of New Jersey, Boston, and marrying a biophysicist.
Since going freelance in 2009, my adventures have included:
- publishing Delft: A Local’s Guide in summer 2014
- copyediting 50+ young adult novels for Candlewick Press and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
- helping several self-published authors and a few scientists polish their manuscripts
- writing dramas and thinking creatively for Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA
- winning a travel-planning contest for the New York Times’s Frugal Traveler
- winning the fall 2012 Expats Blog writing contest
- becoming a tour guide in Delft
- butchering some Dutch phrases
- running four half-marathons (one in the U.S. and three in Europe)
- and working hard on a novel of my own.
I have a master’s in writing and publishing (Emerson College, 2005) and bachelor’s degrees in music performance and English (Grove City College, 2003). I believe that everyone does need a copy editor.
