Bandstand Diaries

I started out in editing with Bandstand Diaries, a delightfully retro collaboration brimming with lighthearted memoirs, a star-studded diary, and behind-the-scenes secrets from the show American Bandstand. From this project, I developed a passion for editing nonfiction and biographies.

Book Reviews

I'm also known for composing reviews that showcase each book's best features and create excitement for new readers.

“Jessica was a dream editor to work with. I never realized how in depth the editing process would be. Her suggestions totally tightened the copy in our American Bandstand book, Bandstand Diaries. Indeed, I recommend Jessica to be your editor. It may turn out to be one of the most important relationships you have as an author or for your business copy.”
