RUNNING ROCK EDITORIAL SERVICES 

I am a freelance book editor and writer based in New York, NY.  My background is in trade book publishing—I spent five years at Writers House, a renowned Manhattan literary agency.  There, I assisted chairman Al Zuckerman (agent to Ken Follett and Michael Lewis among others) and represented my own clients such as the Harvey Award-nominated Laura Lee Gulledge, YA phenom Bethany Griffin, and Elle magazine’s Heather Wagner. As an agent, I worked with many first-time writers and learned how much I enjoyed nurturing talent.

I left Writers House in 2010 to start Rock Editorial Services, which specializes in developmental editing of fiction and memoir manuscripts, as well as an array of services related to book editing.

AND JUST A LITTLE MORE . . . 

I’ve also done my share of copywriting and journalism as well as academic editing, copyediting and proofreading, and resume development and editing. I’ve been published at YourTango, in Marie ClaireColumbia magazine, and the Writer.

I graduated from Princeton University with a degree in English and hail from just north of New York City.  You can reach me at mayarock@gmail.com or by phone at (914) 222-3237.
