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, most recently 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.)
