Author's Assistant Resume


If you are a published author in need of an assistant, or a publisher or agent looking for an assistant for one of your authors, you have come to the right place! Temporary, part-time, full-time - I'm interested in discussing it all. Please see the resume below for my basic points of experience, and contact me with questions and inquiries via the email at the bottom. Thank you! :)


**I'm mainly interested in children's authors (Young Adult and/or Middle Grade preferred, but will consider younger), and possibly genre authors.**
