A-List Editor

I got an unexpected treat from the editor of the San Francisco Chronicle Sunday Magazine. I’ve known for a while that she was going to publish one of my pieces on May 20. We went back and forth on a few edits in a process that turned out to be very pleasant--she’s an easy editor to work with.

I figured that was the end of it, but recently she got in touch with me to show me what the piece would look like with the edits we talked about. She specifically asked me to let her know if there was anything I didn’t like—a nearly unprecedented editorial request. (I tried really hard to find something, but couldn’t.)
