Naomi Hughes has been a freelance editor for about four years and occasionally serves as an Assistant Editor over at Entangled Publishing as well. She’s also a YA/MG writer herself, and loves to hide sneaky fandom references (Doctor Who! Pacific Rim! Doctor Strange!) in her quirky speculative fiction stories. She lives in the rural South with her husband, the most adorable three-year-old on the planet, and a border collie named after a character from Avatar: The Last Airbender.
