Published books I've worked on lately include The Song of Orpheus, by Tracy Barrett, in which some lesser known Greek myths get an "energetic," "accessible," and "entertaining" retelling (Kirkus); The Reckoning, the final novel in Chris Howard's Rootless trilogy (I edited the last two), "a nonstop adventure" with "complex characters, shifting loyalties, and layers of mystery" (Publishers Weekly starred review); Waiting in the Wings, a self-published novel by Geene Rees, available through Barnes and Noble and Amazon, where it's getting great reviews; and MIGGI Matters: How to Train Your Brain to Manage Stress and Trim Your Body, by Selena Bartlett, PhD, a lively, interactive book that one reviewer called "a game changer for me."
Older books include Adventures Among Ants, by Mark W. Moffett, "the Indiana Jones of entomology"; The Hormone Cure, by Dr. Sara Gottfried; and Always Chloe and Other Stories and Where We Belong, by Catherine Ryan Hyde (author of Pay It Forward). More books are in the pipeline, including two novels with SheWrites Press and Kevin McLean's Crossing the River Kabul, a memoir upcoming from Potomac Press, an imprint of the University of Nebraska Press. I'm working with more and more first-time, self-publishing authors. That could include you!
Pamela Feinsilber’s astute eye gave my novel Kingdom of Simplicity just what it needed to go to press. Her touch is like applying every grade of steel wool, from scouring down unnecessary subplots to burnishing the finest thematic strands. Her editorial skills cover the gamut, from structural changes to line editing. Getting great editorial help like this is a necessary investment for any professional author.

When I finally decided to publish a family memoir, a friend in the publishing world recommended Pam. She was the perfect match. She took a rough text through meticulous editing involving language issues, historical references, and multiple voices, shepherding my entry into the literary world with patience, wisdom, encouragement, and enthusiasm. Her attention to detail and precision led to a book of which I am truly proud.
