Overview

I am the former owner and managing editor of Angelic Knight Press. As such, I sat on panels at the World Horror Convention and KillerCon, and took pitches. I read submission after submission and published several anthologies, novels, and novellas. After selling the press, I continued to work as Managing Editor for several other small presses, as well as freelance editing, and writing. I've worked with authors, both famous and just starting out, in a variety of genres, though horror remains my favorite. I have professional experience editing novels, novellas, and short stories. I'm currently the Darkling Around the World Project Manager for Lycan Valley Press Publications. I've also edited several anthologies, the most recent being Final Masquerade, published by LVPP. I love helping writers develop their craft. I'm tough, but fair, and believe constructive criticism is always the best choice. I've worked with Urban Fantasy author Kirk Dougal and Horror author Shaun Jeffery.
