author headshot - edited smallCait Spivey (also known as Black Dog, or the Girl with the TARDIS Tattoo) has never been one to shy from grand undertakings. She tried to read The Silmarillion when she was fifteen, and won the hotly-contested Crown of Verbosity on one of the many RPGs she populated with dozens upon dozens of characters.

Eventually, her skill caught up to her ambition.

Her love of books and stories inevitably led to a passion for their construction and development. As an editor, Cait pulls from her lifelong experience loving books to bring forth the best elements of every story in a way that grabs the reader and doesn’t let go. She wants to help books tug heartstrings. She wants to help books become heirlooms. She wants to help books get quoted on Tumblr.

Cait is currently a developmental editor with REUTS Publications, and assistant to literary agent Saritza Hernandez of Corvisiero Literary Agency.

Formerly, she was a generalist reader for literary agent Jenny Bent of The Bent Agency, and lead editor for more than a dozen titles with Curiosity Quills Press. She worked on her college’s literary magazine for two years, first as the prose editor and then as the managing editor.

In addition to her editing work, Cait is the author of the paranormal novella series, “The Web”.

She has a particular interest in multi-dimensional female characters, diversity, and the mindful handling of sensitive teen issues even in speculative fiction. Click here for more on Cait’s editing style and preferences.
