About Natalie

Natalie Hanemann is an award-winning editor who has worked for more than eighteen years in book publishing. In 2012, she left her position as an acquisitions editor at a major book publisher to stay home with her four children and began her freelance editing business.

Before moving to Nashville, Tennessee in 2003, she worked at Duke University Press in Durham, North Carolina. She earned her undergraduate degree from Appalachian State University. She is currently working on her graduate degree in theology and Christian ministry from Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio.

Natalie has a passion for the written word. She enjoys the various stages of editing a full-length manuscript from brainstorming the concept, coaching during the writing process, providing substantive feedback, and line editing the completed work.

"I'm not a creative writer; I'm an analyzer and lover of storytelling. Stories can come in the form of a novel, but they can also be the story about a dramatic time in your life or in the unique way you share hard-earned wisdom about a topic. I enjoy hearing an author's ideas about their book, reading what they've written, and helping them distill and crystallize the truths they want to convey to the reader. I want to help establish a connection between the author and the reader. It is in this connection that lives are changed."
