TOP 5 REASONS TO PICK ME (BECAUSE LESS IS MORE)
1. About me
Fun: I’ve been in marketing for 15+ years…so yeah, I know booze. Scotch Whisky & Wine, to be exact. My corporate background means I’m familiar with branding, PowerPoints, deadline, and spreadsheets! Exciting, right?
More fun: I teach Pinterest for Authors and Branding for Authors 🙂
Most fun: I live in NY with my 5 year old, black lab puppy, and Scottish hubby.

currently obsessed with B0RNS, Troye Sivan, El Vy, and always, The XX.
LOVE 8tracks.com…the ultimate book playlist!
Anything on BBC America & SyFy. Whedonite. GOT.
And, I’ll admit,
some many of the Bravo programs.
Awkward, I know. Sorrynotsorry.
4. My MS
MOM, I MARRIED A HIGHLANDER is a YA Time Travel, set in the present. Think of it as a YA OUTLANDER, in reverse.
Here’s my Twitter Pitch:
Abby’s extra credit report is derailed when a Highlander from the past jumps into the library. He’s bleeding,dirty &…hot #YA #F #PitMad
It won the 2015 Golden Claddagh RWA contest, and finaled in the 2015 Windy City and the 2016 Great Expectations RWA contests. Recently, it finaled in the 2016 Maggie contest.
# of queries sent: 0 I want to get it all shiny first!
I’m looking for someone to guide me through developmental editing, specifically pacing (vs grammar etc). Tips on balancing humor vs. plot a bonus!
I will work hard! I know enough to know that there’s a lot I don’t know.
Critiques: I have several awesome CPs and we are tough with each other.
So bring it! I have my big girl panties on, I can take it.
5. Did I mention booze?
Yeah, the MS has whisky in it. I just got back from Scotland to here’s a few droolworthy shots.
And that’s about it!
