During her time at S&S, Kate edited several series, including the renowned middle-grade series Nancy Drew, and The Hardy Boys. She also acquired and edited over thirty additional novels, including the first novels published by Kekla Magoon, winner of the Coretta Scott King/ John Steptoe Award for New Talent and NAACP Image Award, and #1 New York Times bestselling author Nova Ren Suma. Other authors included Cecilia Galante, P.G. Kain, Taylor Morris, Shawn K. Stout, Amanda Marrone, Tricia Rayburn, Jessica Leader, and Lauren Barnholdt.
Now, Kate is a full-time freelance editor specializing in YA, NA, MG, tween and literary fiction. She loves that she gets to spend every day focusing on her favorite part of her experience editing for a Big 5—working directly with authors.
Kate believes that everyone has something important to say—everyone has a story to tell. She wants to help you make your story the very best that it can be with thorough, yet compassionate, critiques. She looks forward to working with you to develop your skill, hone your craft, and find your voice.
