Working toward perfection

Over the past ten years, I’ve worked as an editor for a number of different publishers. I began as a copyeditor for a newspaper before moving on to book publishing and educational software. As a freelancer, my emphasis has been on books, although I have also edited websites, marketing projects, and grant proposals.

Some of the publications I’ve worked on include:


Lonely Planet Kids: The Travel Book (U.S. edition)

This incredible book covers every country in the world, with amazing facts on sports, wildlife, how people live, their fabulous food and a wide range of quirky insights on every page. With a mix of stunning photography and beautiful illustrations, every country is brought to life before your eyes.

Speaking to History
Speaking to History: The Story of King Goujian in Twentieth-Century China

by Paul Cohen

“An important work for understanding modern China’s desire to shake off its ‘century of shame.’ It takes us to a deeper level of understanding of China’s sometimes fragile national psyche.”—Ian Johnson, Wall Street Journal


The Crusades, Christianity, and Islam

by Jonathan Riley-Smith

*A Booklist 2008 Editors’ Choice*

Crusading features prominently in today’s religio-political hostilities, yet the perceptions of these wars have been deeply distorted by the language and imagery of nineteenth-century European imperialism.


How East Asians View Democracy

by Andrew Nathan et al.

“Essential reading.” — China Perspectives

East Asian democracies are in trouble, their legitimacy threatened by poor policy performance and undermined by nostalgia for the progrowth, soft-authoritarian regimes of the past.
