Patricia Mulcahy worked closely with me as a ‘book doctor’ for Creating Room to Read: A Story of Hope in the Battle for Global Literacy (Viking 2013). She looked at a years-in-the-making manuscript with fresh eyes, and spent countless hours interviewing key players at Room to Read so that we could also incorporate their voices into the story. I would work with her again in a heartbeat, as should any other author who needs help taking his or her work to the next level

Q: The Autobiography of Quincy Jones simply would not have come into the world without Pat’s efforts. Her tenacity, humor, intelligence, capacity for hard work and attention to detail were all brought fully into play in the task of moving this major commercial and cultural event across the finish line. Believe me, you want Mulcahy on the job.

Fiction

Patricia Mulcahy was my editor for eleven books at three different publishing houses. She is one of those rare people who never lets an author, his book, his agent, or his publisher down. From the time the book was purchased by the publisher, Pat stayed with the entire process. She’s a literary and story editor, a wonderful marketing and business person, and a total professional in ensuring that the book receives maximum attention. She has a great instinct about what succeeds and what doesn’t succeed in marketing a book, just as she had a tremendous talent for quickly intuiting what a story needs or doesn’t need in terms of character or plot development. She’s an editor in the tradition of Maxwell Perkins. Her help and friendship have been invaluable in the progress in my career.
