I got to know Renée as an efficient and knowledgeable Production Editor at AVA books in 2006. She helped bring the final difficult threads of a number of editorial projects together quickly, but without compromise as print deadlines approached. Her diplomacy and technical knowledge were, at all times, assets, particularly in those last-minute negotiations acquiring image publication rights.
I first worked with Renée as my Editor on The Fundamentals of Creative Photography – she saw this project through with me from planning to print. Early outlines rapidly became a structured and well-ordered book with little need for later or hasty revision because of her meticulous attention to detail. Her diligence and follow-up on every communication make Renée a delight to work with.
