About Me

I am a freelance proofreader and copyeditor with a lifelong love of the written word and a keen expertise in language mechanics and literary devices. Anything with words is fair game, fiction is a favourite, and I specialize in academic citation styles (MLA, APA, Chicago); but the dream that keeps me warm at night is to be an editor of superhero comics. I am in the tricky early stages of self-employment, reaching out to online writing communities to network and build a portfolio. Contact me to have all your errant commas rounded up and put back in the right place.

My own writing is mainly nonfiction -- film and literary criticism, travel journalism, encyclopedia articles, and the ramblings of a popular media maven. I also have a few short stories and unpublished radio dramas to my name, and enjoy experimenting with poetry forms (I like sestinas).

I come down on the side of the Oxford comma, the singular 'they,' and the split infinitive when done with authority, and I know more about the X-Men than is strictly healthy for a grown person.

Thank you for the reviews today, I do like to see where the mind of the learned reader goes. I will have to warn you that my stuff gets much, much harsher as it goes on. It is interesting to see that you are dedicated to comics, in that I inevitably view my stories as long series suited for graphic comics. something along the original crow, all dark and full of darkness with just carefully illiminated image and detail.

I cant wait till you get to meet some of the other characters. they all have roots, from the ludicrous to the biblical. a lot of tongue in cheek.
