About Christine

For the last fifteen years, I’ve had the privilege of discovering and publishing incredible books and being able to work with amazing writers to develop their craft and deliver their stories to the world. I’ve been an in-house editor at various Big Five imprints, including Doubleday, Broadway, Hyperion, and, most recently, as a Senior Editor at Simon and Schuster. I’ve also worked independently, contracting with publishers, agents and writers for editorial work, content development and ghostwriting. And, I’m starting a new journey on the “other side,” having sold two novels of my own (written with my amazing friend and writing partner, Jo Piazza.) The first, We Are Not Like Them, will be published by HarperCollins/Morrow in Spring 2021.

Throughout my publishing career, I’ve worked on a diverse range of projects across many categories, including many New York Times bestsellers. The through line to all of my work is a commitment to champion accomplished story-telling, distinctive voices, and narratives that drive discussion and offer emotional resonance and inspiration.

Stories can change hearts, minds— and the world. Hokey, but true and I’m committed to delivering (and helping others deliver) those sorts of stories to readers who are eager for them. Perhaps I can help you?
