English Ph.D. With 15 Years of Editorial Experience

I'm an English Ph.D. with 15 years' experience as a writer, editor, and college English professor. As an academic, I've been teaching students how to express themselves in clear, clean prose since 2008, while publishing research on a variety of topics on film and historical fiction. As a writer, I've published sci-fi, fantasy, and horror stories in half a dozen professional literary magazines, and am an active member of both SFWA and HWA. As a fiction editor, I've lent my geeky passion for sci-fi/fantasy topics and historical fiction to a number of projects, working as everything from a lead developmental editor helping authors workshop rough manuscripts to a copy editor, line editor, proofreader, and story consultant. I often work in the genres of sci-fi, fantasy, YA and children's literature, and non-fiction memoir and history. I'm also widely practiced in editing commercial copy, and maintain ongoing relationships as an 'in-house' editor for several businesses. Some of the more interesting projects I've worked on include: -Robert C. Feol's award-winning "A Journey to Mouseling Hollow" series of fantasy adventure books -Writer and story editor on 'The Land Forgotten,' a fantasy video game -Developmental editor and copy editor of a sci-fi mystery novel, cyberpunk novel, sci-fi/fantasy mashup novel, and epic fantasy novel inspired by the Arabian Nights -Editor of children's books by Deborah Mortimer, Tameka Mitchell, and Kristen Niedzielski -Writer and editor of a comedic promotional book on the history of the velour tracksuit -Editor of historical manuscripts related to the Kennedy Assassination and the rise and fall of K-Mart -Wrote and edited copy for a clothing company, medical marketing company, legal consulting service, environmental organization, whiskey distillery, and adult toys manufacturer -Diversity/Sensitivity Reader for textbooks published by McGraw-Hill and children's books published by Learning A-Z -Writer for five themed collections in a series of Presidential Speeches -Historical Consultant for a novel set during the Civil War
