Meet Our Staff
Working with The Editorial Department means having access to a wide range of tastes, backgrounds, and areas of expertise. We have editors specializing in many genres of fiction, including mystery/suspense, thrillers, crime novels, romance, science fiction, fantasy, literary, mainstream, historical, short stories, and more. We have specialists in a wide range of nonfiction categories, including memoir, travel, religion, self-help, health, history, nature, ecology, wellness, and others.
Many of our editors have experience as literary agents or in-house acquisitions editors and bring an insider’s perspective on the standards and demands of the traditional publishing marketplace. Several are experienced writing teachers who specialize in helping writers develop a better command of basic and advanced writing techniques. Some of our editors are also professional authors or screenwriters and are available for ghostwriting, collaboration, or screenplay adaptation projects.
Full bios are available below, and if you have questions about which editor might be best for you, contact Ross Browne in the Tucson office. You’re welcome to request a specific editor or have us recommend one for you after a no-cost, no-obligation preliminary review of your materials. Our editor recommendations are typically based on your genre or subject matter, what kind of editing is needed, and whatever specific knowledge or skillset may be required. But there are other factors as well, and we take great care with editor assignments.
“In publishing, a novel by an unknown writer is a difficult thing to sell. The only thing more difficult is a novel by a writer who had some slight success and then, through failure to produce, has become a has-been.” Elizabeth Nowell, Literary Agent
