Sara Brzowsky, (<>)  a 
freelance editor in New York, is my recommendation. She worked as a magazine 
editor for many years, has worked quite a bit with young authors and 
particularly in the Jewish life experience.

Gene McGarry<> from Boston 
is an excellent academic copy editor with high literary skills. He specializes 
in all things related to Hebrew Bible, Jewish Studies, Near East, etc., but has 
experience in a wide range of  subject fields.

Subject: [ha-Safran] looking for an editor to take on unusual project

Hello safranim,

I am wondering if anyone on this list knows a professional  editor that may be 
willing to work on an unusual project.  I know a young man here in LA (about 30 
years old) who has written an autobiography of his life as someone who is 
living with Asperger's.  He told me he is looking for an editor before he 
self-publishes. I saw a few chapters of his work and it is quite interesting 
and well-written. He discusses his fears and his upbringing (parents 
Israeli---Jewish school and expectations) quite clearly, although it is obvious 
in sentence structure that he thinks quite concretely. He does have a job and 
is willing to pay for an editor to look at his book. I told him that I do think 
his book will be of interest to those who want to learn more about the thought 
processes of a person with Asperger's Syndrome, but I don't know free-lance or 
other editors.  If anyone has any ideas, please pass them along!
