About Me

Kate Marope

A full-time freelance editor since 2015, I love helping authors find their voice and tell their stories in the most compelling way possible. I have professionally critiqued and developmental edited over thirty paranormal, urban fantasy, and romance novels. My client list includes Amazon Humorous Fantasy bestseller, PM Drummond, Golden Palm Contest winner, Brooke Stanton, and other debut authors in the US and UK. I also edit technical non-fiction in the social sciences, specifically psychology, marketing, and education.

In 2018, I joined Carina Press as a freelance acquisitions editor, interested in romance and mystery books in all subgenres and at all heat levels. If you are interested in publishing with Carina Press, please see the submission guidelines, and check out my manuscript wishlist.

In my free time I travel, read fanfiction, binge watch TV shows, and make (helpful) videos on YouTube.
