Developmental editing, line editing, and copy editing for works of fiction, particularly in the genres of fantasy, science fiction, horror, and young adult. My developmental editing services were utilized for four stories in the Unspeakable: A Queer Gothic Anthology collection: Bluebeard, Laguna and the Engkanto, Rodeo, and The Dream Eater.
As a student in Portland State University's Book Publishing Graduate Program, I worked in a hands-on capacity as a publisher at the graduate program's own press, Ooligan Press. Ooligan Press publishes fiction and non-fiction about the Pacific Northwest region and is run by students in the Book Publishing program. In my time at Ooligan Press, I fulfilled multiple roles within the press, including in the spheres of marketing, promotion, digital, and design, but my worked leaned particularly toward editing.
I provided editorial assessment for a number of titles coming through our acquisition channels, including multiple titles that went on to be published by Ooligan, including Three Sides Water, Breaking Cadence, and Odsburg. Additionally, I provided copyediting and proofreading for marketing and supplemental materials for the promotion of At the Waterline, as well as editorial assement and developmental editing for Elephant Speak. However, my most involved project at Ooligan Press was Sleeping in My Jeans, for which I was on the publication team from acquisition to publication, and I had a hand in the editorial, marketing, and design process at nearly every step of this book's publication journey.
As an author, my primary job involves conceptualizing, writing, editing, and marketing works of fiction, particularly fantasy and cross-genre speculative fiction with a queer and disabled voice. While my shorter fiction is now out of print, my debut novel Moonshine published in 2018 and was nominated for an Endeavour Award. I continue to write and edit speculative fiction novels and engage in the science-fiction/fantasy sphere on panels regarding the craft of writing.
