Book Development


In a past life, Tere was an award-winning, bestselling editor of more than 150 books, which sold tens of millions of copies worldwide (see the entire list, below). She specialized in working with celebrity authors, managing next-to-impossible deadlines, and editing complex topics—especially in medicine, science, and engineering. Today, because of her focus on digital-marketing, Tere only rarely takes on book-editing projects.
