I am an independent writer, editor, and creative consultant—and a lifelong maker. My newest book, Making a Life: Working by Hand and Discovering the Life You Are Meant to Live, will be published by Artisan on 29 October 2019. Formerly the publishing director of STC Craft/Melanie Falick Books, an imprint of Abrams, I am proud to have helped to create many substantive, beautiful how-to and literary nonfiction works. I am the former editor-in-chief of Interweave Knits magazine and the author of Knitting in America, Kids Knitting, and Weekend Knitting, and the co-author of Knitting for Baby, with over 400,000 books in print. I live with my family in New York’s beautiful Hudson River Valley.
