years in publishing

Working on a wide range of subjects — from memoir and nonfiction to essays and blogs — with writers and editors worldwide and co-authoring a triple memoir with the esteemed publishing house Little, Brown & Co. in the US and five other countries.

 

25+

Years in Journalism

Reporting for national U.S. newspapers, including The Boston GlobeMiami Herald, and The Washington Post, I covered major events from Hurricane Andrew and the crash of TWA Flight 800 to 9/11 and the Roman Catholic Church clergy sexual abuse crisis with some of the country's top editors in journalism.

 
 

My Services

I provide nonfiction book proposal and manuscript critiques as well as one-on-one consulting, copy editing, proofreading, line editing, substantive (heavy) editing, rewriting, and developmental editing. As a published author and university instructor, I'm familiar with the process for traditional and self-published books and can provide knowledgeable advice and direction.

 

Nonfiction book/ebook editing, rewrites, manuscript reviews & consultations

I offer consulting and critiques of nonfiction manuscripts of all lengths as well as query letters, blogs, book proposals, and project concepts. I can provide detailed, constructive feedback before you submit your written work to agents, editors or publishers.
 

 Digital content

I edit, write, and ghostwrite blogs and other digital content so they effectively convey your (or your client's) distinct voice and message. I can help you convey the most important information in ways that are succinct, strategic, and SEO optimized.

News articles & features

Name the subject, and chances are I've written or edited on it. From news briefs to magazine articles (and everything in -between), I provide accurate, thorough, and informative copy that humanizes and contextualizes topics to draw in readers and keep them engaged. 
 

Newsletters, press releases, annual reports & marketing materials

As a longtime journalist, I know what works and what doesn't work when it comes to catching someone's attention. Whether it's a one-time announcement, a press packet or an annual report, I can help you get the publicity you need for your business or organization with clean, powerful copy that delivers eye-grabbing news.

what people are saying

As a writer, I would describe Pamela as simply elegant. She writes with beautiful fluidity. Her long experience with complex topics, in both science and economics, has made her expert at translating difficult concepts into language that is understandable to readers without dumbing it down or losing the nuance. She writes and edits with authority.
