Canon Tales: Slide 17

Coming back to my childhood ambition to be Nancy Drew… in a lot of ways I see being an editor as similar to being a detective. And not just in searching for talented authors the way a detective might search for suspects…

When I’m helping an author develop a novel I’m looking for the holes in the alibi plot…Asking the questions that haven’t been covered yet, ensuring everything’s as clear and true to the story as possible. 

Ambition achieved.
