Developmental Editing for Science Fiction and Fantasy Authors

Just like a trunk supports the limbs of a tree, your story relies on core elements to be strong:

Plot

Character

Setting

Pacing

Sometimes we get so into our stories it’s hard to tell if our trunk is thick and strong, if it’s gone a bit wonky, or become so weak it falls over in the slightest breeze.

Going Overboard to Help You

In my youth, I pursued the practical career path. I earned my BS and an MS degree in physics with the promise of stable employment and a decent salary.

Working in science and engineering was indeed stable. The salary was more than decent. Over a decade of it sucked out my creative soul. So I left to pursue a career in writing. Another decade plus of writing for other people and I found my soul just as empty.

I took a leap and returned to school, this time to feed my creative side. I’ve earned my MA in English and Creative Writing and a Master’s of Fine Arts in Creative Writing.

See? Overboard. Who needs four degrees? Me, apparently.

Degrees are great, but how do they help you?

My hard science background means I know how to problem solve and analyze. My creative writing degrees taught me about story, structure, editing and how to give useful feedback. This means I have years of experience to put to work on your project. It’s a combination you won’t find anywhere else.
