Abingdon Acquisitions Editor Retires
Abingdon Press announced that senior acquisitions editor Ramona Richards will leave the company on December 11. Richards will pursue a freelance writing and editing career.
“My time at Abingdon has been a crucial fulcrum point in my career," Richards said. “I will miss being a part of one of the best creative teams I’ve ever worked with."
She worked for Thomas Nelson Publishers, now Harper Collins Christian Publishing, from 1992 to 2000 and from 2005-2009 as a Bible project editor, CD-ROM editor and associate acquisitions editor before moving to Abingdon in August 2010. She oversaw the company’s fiction line and, more recently, its Christian living line.
Over the course of her career, Richards worked with bestselling authors Sharyn McCrumb, Deborah Raney, and Jim Kraus. Richards has also worked with titles that have won a Christy Award, a Carol Award, and three Christian Retailing Best awards.
