The Editing Branch of Paisley Press Books

About Me

I love old things, cats, ice cream, and books. A native Rhode Islander, I am the face behind The-Paisley and its offshoots: The Paisley Reader, The Paisley Editor, The Paisley Writer, and The Paisley Publicist. A writing tutor and term-paper editor in college, I fell in love with editing once more after becoming a beta reader. At 50K words into my New Adult SciFi debut novel, I hope to have it published by December 2015. With a degree in Museum Studies, I hope that one day something at a museum will come to life like in the books and movies I love.

Here is my relevant experience as it relates to editing and the indie world. For a full resume, you can go to my Linkedin.
