Bio: Katie Rowney writes fiction and non-fiction books about almost anything that takes her fancy. Front Page News, her debut, was also her first-ever attempt at writing a novel and was selected from Penguin Random House’s slush pile for publication. A former journalist and communications specialist and editor by trade, Katie has a love of words and reads at least three books a week.

Why are you excited to do this? I love reading, writing, and anything to do with words, and believe a good author gets as much out of editing others work as they do writing their own. I come from a long line of farmers and am delighted to be able to assist in this small way.

Submission length: whole manuscript

Communication: email, phone

Reply time: within three months
