Bio: After twenty-five years at Harlequin, Mary-Theresa Hussey (aka Matrice) opened up her editorial consultant business as Good Stories Well Told. She’s taken her editorial expertise working on NYT bestsellers, USA TODAY bestsellers, and just plain wonderful stories to the wider publishing world, and has been working with debut authors, self-published authors and publishing houses on everything from query letters to multi-stage complete edits. She’s still living in NYC but loves the mobility of her new job as well. She blogs occasionally (, tweets every so often (@matrice), and reads frequently.

What an Editor

Program Description: Beyond a well-written book and perfect author, there are a few things that will make a working relationship with an editor easier. In this discussion, Mary-Theresa Hussey will share the hard-earned wisdom of twenty-five years in traditional publishing and two in freelance editorial consulting.
