Welcome

“A great book should leave you with many experiences, and slightly exhausted at the end. You live several lives while reading.”

–William Styron

About Me

cropped-ella12.png

I’m a publishing professional, editor, and grad student by day and independent book reviewer and freelancer by night.

What do I do in real life or when I’m not reviewing books?

  • I serve the writing community as a publishing professional. I work as a book editor and assistant editor for a magazine. I’m also a mentor with a few non-profits. So if you’re local, you may eventually see me around.
  • I proofread write, edit, and assist. I typically work with essays, book manuscripts, and business documents. I’ve also been known to ghost write web content. I’ll be honest though, ghost writing isn’t my favorite thing.
  • I design. I have my designs up on internet shops and even had a few put on hundreds of game mats. Cool, right? I also get to design marketing and advertising pieces because I’m a publicity and marketing director for a publishing house. I’ve designed logos and brochures for organizations, too. My love is really in typography and book covers-–go figure. I also enjoy photography!
  • I’m constantly learning, trying to be the best version of myself, and creating. I love art and working with creative people so I try to fill my days with both. I recently graduated with a bachelors in English and a minor in business. I’m currently a graduate student at George Washington University where I study publishing.
  • I work and freelance on the side. 

Don’t hesitate to get in touch with me!
