I’m a full-time BELS-certified freelance copyeditor in the scientific, technical, and medical industry. I specialize in journal copy, and I have particular expertise in the following topics: allergy, infectious diseases, oncology, rehabilitation, sports medicine, and transplantation. I edit books for university presses on a wide range of general- and special-interest topics, such as war and presidential studies, critical theory, and fossils.


My PhD is in English from the University of Kansas, where I studied science fiction literature with James Gunn. I have authored two books and a number of articles and have coedited three books. Most of my work is service within the fan and SF scholarly communities, usually focusing on project management and book or journal production.

Current projects

I am currently working on televisual representations of the alternate history and audio dramas. I remain particularly interested in the Eighth Doctor and Big Finish audio dramas.


I am founding coeditor of the academic journal Transformative Works and Cultures.



I am not teaching any English classes.

I teach aerobics at the UMF Fitness & Recreation Center. View their schedule to see what I teach; Barre, Strength & Conditioning, Step/Zumba Step, and Aqua Zumba are my most commonly taught classes. In addition, also through UMF, I teach Tai Chi for Healthy Aging (fee required); and I am an ACE-certified personal trainer.

My Zumba profile lists any Zumba-branded classes I teach, including CIRCL Mobility. I have been Zumba certified since 2009.
