About

I’m a creative storyteller and editor based in the Berkshires. Learn more about what I do.

Stories sell—even more so than products, services, and ideas. That’s why I’m in the business of creating unique stories, and why my clients trust me to communicate theirs to the world.

I’m based at the edge of the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts, close to Troy and Albany, New York, and a freelance writer and editor for businesses, service providers, entrepreneurs, magazine and book publishers, and authors who prefer big ideas to little details. Throughout the course of my career, I’ve published over 100 articles and 1,000 blog posts, and served as the developmental editor, copyeditor, or proofreader on more than 350 books and dozens of magazines. 

As a freelance writer and editor, I craft creative marketing, advertising, PR, and Web copy—including SEO writing, content marketing, and social media content and strategy—for brands both large and small. And as an editor, I specialize in helping authors who aren’t professional writers take their stories from concept to printed book, no matter what their field of expertise.

I write. I edit. I strategize. I even teach seminars and classes on a variety of writing and editing topics.

about Robin Catalano

“Working with Robin as a book editor was the perfect author-editor relationship. She was respectful of my style yet never let a misplaced form of punctuation nor a run-on sentence get by her eagle eyes. And her sharp skills were softened by a deliciously wry wit. I know she made my books easier to read and staved off grammar police.”
