Natalie Hanemann is an award-winning editor who has worked for twenty years in book publishing. In 2012, she left her position as an acquisitions editor at HarperCollins Christian (formerly Thomas Nelson) to start a freelance editing business.
Before moving to Nashville, Tennessee, she worked at Duke University Press. She earned her undergraduate degree from Appalachian State University. She is currently completing her graduate degree in Theology and Christian Ministry from Franciscan University.
Natalie is passionate about the written word. She enjoys the various stages of editing a full-length manuscript from brainstorming the concept, coaching the author during the writing process, providing them with substantive feedback, and line editing the completed work. She can also lend a hand in the writing if the author requires it.
“I'm a lover of stories. Stories aren’t only found in novels; nonfiction books share the fruit of an author’s journey to gain hard-earned wisdom on a myriad of topics. I enjoy hearing an author’s hopes and ideas for their book, reading what they’ve written, and helping them to crystallize the truths they want to convey to the reader. Reading is ultimately about relationship. My goal is for the author and the reader to feel a connection. It is through this transference of life's wisdom that people’s hearts and minds grow.”
