artful editor


Katie McCoach is a developmental editor working with traditional and self-published authors. Her motto is, “Let’s create your best story!” In the past, she worked at a publishing house and apprenticed at a literary agency, where she evaluated agent queries. Many of her authors have gone on to land literary agents and publishing deals, and several have won awards. Her editing specialties are sci-fi, fantasy, and romance for YA, NA, and adult audiences. She is a PRO member of Romance Writers of America, a member of ALLi, and she mentors teen girls in creative writing through WriteGirl. She is a founding editor of Revise & Resub (RevPit), a contest for emerging writers. With a coffee shop on every corner in Los Angeles, you’ll never find Katie without caffeine.
