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: oncology, rehabilitation, sports medicine, infectious diseases, and transplantation. I edit books for several 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 Professor Emeritus 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 a project about Doctor Who recons. I presented a version of this at ICFA in 2013 and 2014, and I will present an expanded version as a keynote at Worldcon in London 2014.
