Anna Katz

Before committing to the book and literary world, Anna worked in the world of mental health and social services. A cheerful and industrious editor and in-house writer at HQ in Seattle, Anna can help with both the big picture and the fine details. Her keen editorial eye makes her much sought-after for editorial evaluations and developmental editing, and she also writes like a dream. Her prose can be tailored to many genres, short form or book-length works, and Anna has a special knack (and love) for helping people to clearly and compellingly structure their ideas and stories. Recent projects include a children’s book for Nat Geo Kids, a Finnish police procedural dev edit, and a collaboration with a former Olympic athlete.
