Picture Book Developmental Editor


Bringing Your Story to Life

As a picture book developmental editor, I have help my clients bring their stories to life in a fun, concise way. I have worked with a variety of books, but I have particular expertise and passion for Jewish picture books.

Story Structure and Storytelling

Because of my many years of experience telling stories across genres and mediums, I have developed a keen eye for story structure. I guide my clients in centering the child’s perspective and knowing what will resonate with children and how to modulate content for different ages.
