Award-winning young adult author Heather Howland began editing in the legal, industrial, and technical sectors eight years ago while working as a Production Manager. She has since honed her fiction editing skills as a freelancer and as the former acquisitions editor of a small romance publisher. She now works with popular authors such as USA Today bestseller Cari Quinn, Amy Andrews, and Laura Kaye. A portrait photographer in a former life, Heather’s eye for art lends itself to simplistic, NY-style book covers. In her spare time, Heather hosts craft chats and teaches editing workshops for various organizations, and mentors YA authors through the editing process at Savvy U. She holds a BS in creative writing and psychology, which she channels into her love of dark, romantic fiction. Find her on Twitter at @HeatherHowland.
