I work primarily with independent, self-published authors; most of those authors write some form of speculative fiction, whether that’s far-future sci-fi, urban fantasy, or or other speculative fiction. That said, I’ve worked with other types of authors on many other types of books, both fiction and nonfiction. See my portfolio for a selection, or see my expanded list of works edited.


My nonfiction book, The Indie Author’s Guide to Book Editing, helps new authors find, hire, and work with the right editor for their manuscript and publishing plans. I also share my writing and editing experiences on my blog.

When I’m not working with clients, I contribute fiction to Ascraeus Press. This is also the home of my science fiction universe, Proxima Rising. Ascraeus Press is the fiction imprint I share with illustrator Emily Ruf of RUFTIMES. Our collaborative work is in its early stages, but we have big plans; visit Ascraeus Press for updates.
