Rebecca Raskin, Former Editor at HarperCollins

I was an editor at HarperCollins with experience working in both nonfiction and fiction, including romance, mystery, commercial fiction, wellness, business and politics. I have a BA in English Literature and Language from Smith College and a Copyediting Certificate from the UC San Diego Extension.

I started my publishing career as an intern at Folio Literary Management where I worked primarily with women’s fiction, romance and select nonfiction. I became an agent’s assistant and then moved to Kensington Publishing Corp. As an editorial assistant at Kensington, I worked on women’s fiction, romance, mysteries, and thrillers for two years. I then moved over to work on nonfiction. I now work primarily on nonfiction on a daily basis but I have continued freelance editing romance and women’s fiction. I love working with authors to hone their voice and their story. It is so much fun to get to read all day and help writers bring their projects to life.
