Books On Shelf


​Mariah is a superbly talented writer and editor. I commissioned her to put together four book projects for ABC-CLIO’s “Unlocking American History” series—a series of reference guides to the central concepts, themes, and events of pivotal eras in American history. Drawing from existing content by James Olson, Mariah repurposed the material to create new books for the series​:​ ​​The New Era of the 1920s, ​​The Great Depression and the New Deal​,​​ The 1950s​, and ​​The 1960s. In addition to the encyclopedic A–Z entries, she created original supplemental materials for each volume in the series: an introductory essay, a chronology, thematic tagging, more than a dozen primary sources, Advanced Placement (AP) exam resources, and a bibliography—providing a complete study resource for high school students studying to take the AP U.S. history course as well as undergraduates taking an introductory U.S. History survey course. The manuscripts were always expertly written—and always delivered in a timely fashion. It was a great pleasure working with her in the past, and I look forward to working with her again!

Mariah was the development editor for my monograph, Sample Preparation Techniques for Soil, Plant, and Animal Samples, Humana Press (Springer Nature). Mariah is very detail-oriented, excels at project management, and is great at proofreading. I am looking forward to working with Mariah again on some of my future books. I have over 80 publications in total, and Mariah is the best development editor I've worked with.

Mariah provided intelligent, informed, and useful guidance, immediate follow-up, and sensitive and sensible oversight of authors. She was creative in thinking about new projects and ways to fit Greenwood books into the larger Greenwood body of material. She had a wonderful way with authors, no doubt because of her common sense and good humor. She understood what was necessary and what was possible. She produced first-rate books in the series with which I worked with her. And she followed up to be sure authors' interests were understood and met.

Mariah was the editor for my third book. She is a good editor with a keen eye. She offers clear direction and follows an author's progress to ensure that deadlines are met and to address any issues that may arise with a manuscript well in advance of deadlines. She is also flexible, supportive, and responsive.

Absolutely incredible job! I have worked with editors in the past that erased my voice from the text and made it feel like it wasn't mine, but you only enhanced my voice! I am very happy with your work. Thank you!
