A freelance editor, I specialize in fiction but I've worked on non-fiction as well as web copy, corporate literature, and non-profit materials. I also edit and write for the group blog Magnificent Nose, which covers many topics but gravitates towards articles about writing and reading.

I'm also a lyricist; a guitarist for the band Baroque & Hungry; and I'm a touring cyclist.

You can contact me about editing matters here. (Please don't use this form for Stack Exchange business; instead, ping me in chat.)

comment Legal effect of standard fiction disclaimer
This looks to be a legal question that has nothing to do with writing. How do other folks weigh in on this?

comment How to write a polite reminder email?
Just a note: If this question were asked now, it might well be closed as off-topic. (It's not asking what to write, exactly, but those are the answers it's generating.)

comment Story-telling to improve writing skills?
What is your question here, exactly? It reads like a question that's asking for everybody's experiences - which is a discussion question, not an answerable question. Is there any way to focus this question more?

comment What are PoD options for a 5M Bible?
@martinf - This is a question about publishing, which is on-topic here.

comment Are there more character alignment grids (like D&D)
Forgive me if I'm missing the point here, but isn't this more of a gaming question or a design question than a writing question?

comment Storyboard a Novel?
Welcome to Writers. This is a Q&A site, not a discussion forum, and you will find that answers here need to be more specific. Your answer doesn't really address this question, which is asking about novels. Do you have the knowledge to expand this answer to novels?

comment Do you use the word “that” too much?
This is a call for discussion, not a question. Closing for now, but this page in our help center will explain why this is a problem.
