Cate Hogan

DEVELOPMENTAL FICTION & MEMOIR EDITOR

Since childhood Cate has been awed by the power of stories; these spells of fantasy that transport us to new places, twist our emotions and challenge our beliefs. To the untrained eye, the art of storytelling is mystical and enigmatic; stories either move us, or they don’t. But fiction writing is a craft, and while there is a creative ‘x-factor’ that no amount of training can manufacture, the vast majority of elements can be learned and developed.

As a developmental editor, Cate applies her intuition and knowledge to a manuscript to ensure it resonates with readers. Witnessing a novel click into perfection is endlessly gratifying, and her passion for good stories has made her one of the best developmental editors in the business. Cate’s work and essays have been featured in international publications like The Telegraph (UK) and Novelists Inc., an exclusive network for multi-bestselling authors in the US. More importantly, Cate has developed hundreds of great novels, including Amazon, USA Today and International bestsellers across multiple fiction and memoir genres.
