Rose Fox has been a freelance editor since 1997; a professional book critic since 2002; and a Publishers Weekly reviews editor, covering the SF/fantasy/horror and romance markets, since 2007. Her reviews, short fiction, and poetry have appeared in Publishers Weekly, Strange Horizons, the Internet Review of Science Fiction, Some Fantastic, and a handful of small press anthologies.
Having reviewed hundreds of books, Rose knows exactly how to dig into a manuscript, find the qualities that make it strong and unique, and provide the author with clear explanations of what works well and what can be improved. She is a trained copy editor and linguist, and can happily spend hours discussing the nuances of a single word. She especially loves helping new authors discover and strengthen their voices.
Rose lives in New York City with two partners, two cats, seven computers, and several thousand books.
