I joined Ohlinger Studios in January 2015, and I am currently the Senior Managing Editor for the Communication, English, History, and Advanced Placement lists.
Prior to joining Ohlinger Studios, I worked as a freelance editor for sixteen years and have experience editing in the following disciplines: Art, Anthropology, American Government, Business, Collegiate English, Developmental English, History, Philosophy, Religion, and Sociology, among others.
I began my publishing career at Macmillan Publishing Company in 1985 as the editorial assistant to the editor-in-chief for the Humanities team. I was an acquisitions editor in house, acquiring titles in ESL, Philosophy, Religion, Sociology, Development English (Reading and Writing), Creative Writing, Technical Writing, and Literature.
I have published thirteen novels as well with Minotaur Books/St. Martin’s Press under my own name and my pen name, Maggie McConnon. I live in the Hudson Valley with my husband, a twenty-five pound Maine Coon cat, and a very lovable but needy West Highland Terrier.
