Developmental editing, line editing, and copy editing for works of fiction, particularly in the genres of fantasy, science fiction, horror, and young adult. Additionally, I provide editorial assessment for projects in their earlier stages. I've worked with works of numerous formats, including single short stories, short story anthologies, novellas, and novels.
In addition to my professional editing work, I am also a volunteer member of the publications team at the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers Association (SFWA), where I regularly provide line edits on non-fiction articles that publish to the SFWA Blog.
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, which publishes fiction and non-fiction about the Pacific Northwest region. 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, including Three Sides Water, Breaking Cadence, and Odsburg. Additionally, I provided copy editing for marketing and supplemental materials for At the Waterline, as well as 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.
