Robert F. – Editor

A versatile fiction, non-fiction and autobiographical editor, I am also a Series Editor with global academic and interdisciplinary expertise

Overview

I am a freelance writer, editor and book coach with extensive and significant experience in interdisciplinary publishing. I am the Series Editor for, two academic publishing houses: Brill/De Gruyter and Emerald. Over a decade ago I set up a publishing house which encourages different kinds of publishing to suit each book’s content and style of writing. To date, it has published over 300 titles and two journals.


I help with book proposals, plot and narrative overviews, book coaching, copyediting — in fact, all aspects of the various writing processes from beginning to conclusion.


My style is humorous, responsive, but always honest. Your voice is what the reader needs to hear, so my working style is to offer suggestions, thoughts and insights to help you express your voice clearly.


Writing is both fun as well as frustrating. I am a companion with you on your narrative journey.

Work experience

Emerald Publishing

Sep, 2019 — Present

The series promotes innovative research and encourages exemplary interdisciplinary practice, thinking and living. Books focus on developing dialogues between and among disciplines, professions, practices and vocations in which the interaction of chapters and authors is of paramount importance.

Brill / Rodopi

Jan, 2002 — Present

The series encourages interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary dialogues. By bringing people together from differing contexts, disciplines, professions, and vocations, we engage in conversations that are innovative and creatively interactive. This kind of dialogue often illuminates one's own area of work, is suggestive of new possibilities for development, and creates exciting horizons for future conversations with persons from a wide variety of national and international settings.
