For Hire

I am the editor of the #10 New York Times bestselling essay anthology The Bitch in the House, and its sequel, The Bitch is Back, which was an NPR “Best Book” of 2016. I also worked as a magazine editor for many years, including as a Senior Editor at Seventeen; as the “Life Lessons” editor at Real Simple; and as a Contributing Writer at Elle. The author of three novels (1996, 2007, 2012—see BOOKS) and a former instructor in The New School MFA program, I have worked with many clients over the years, on novels, memoirs, anthologies, and essays.
