I am a bilingual editor/writer with a solid mix of creative and content management skills. Former managing editor of PaperTigers.org (2004-2010), a prestigious website about multicultural children’s and young adult books, I have been a literary judge for the inaugural Scholastic Asian Book Award (2011) and a manuscript evaluator and developmental editor for the Andrea Brown Literary Agency (ranked #1 in juvenile sales in Publishers Marketplace).

Currently working as an independent editor, writer and editorial consultant, I offer manuscript evaluation and development consulting, focusing on children’s and young adult books, as well as general copyediting and proofreading services to a variety of individual and business clients.

I live in San Francisco with my husband and daughter, in the sunny neighborhood of Bernal Heights, and can be reached at aline3[at]mac[dot]com.
