Cristen's Wish List: Vegan Book Projects

Cristen Iris

I'm looking for thought-provoking, nuanced academic and subject matter expert written nonfiction projects focused on veganism.

My degree in anthropology and focus on medical anthropology means I love working with people who shine a light in dark places and help readers better see, understand, and navigate the world around them in a healthy, sustainable way.

I specialize in working with authors who aspire to be traditionally published.

Of particular interest:

  • evidence-based medicine
  • evolutionary medicine
  • the intersection of faith and science
  • public health and policy
  • environmentalism
  • animal rights and compassion

If working with a results-oriented developmental editor and book collaborator who engages as a long-term strategic partner is on your wish list, let's talk to see if we're a good fit.
