I have been an avid fiction reader all my life.  Picture this! Seven year old future editor dutifully polishing the living room furniture with rag in one hand and Nancy Drew novel in the other!   I never dreamed I would have the opportunity to be a part of the publishing industry much less work as an editor to New York Times bestselling authors. After twenty five years working for a major publishing house, have escaped the cubicle and have formed my own Editorial Service. In addition, I have joined the Natasha Kern Literary Agency (www.natashakern.com) as an agent.
