Amelia began editing historical fiction and romance when higher education began to feel claustrophobic. She has over a decade of advocacy, consulting, and teaching experience, all of which she puts to excellent use as an author-focused editor. (On the other side of the process, she has published non-fiction with Bloomsbury and fiction with smaller publishers.)
She’s particularly keen on the long nineteenth century, Dark Ages, and Early Modern period. Her favorite stories tend to be considered dark or unusual, but to quote the unparalleled Morticia Addams: “Normal is an illusion.” Sadly, she has no spare time and therefore very few hobbies, yet still manages to perfect her sense of humor.
