I have worked in the fiction-writing
industry for over
five years and have been editing stories for longer. I have edited for
both award-winning and best-selling authors and have worked on
manuscripts written for middle grade, young adult, and adult readers,
with most of my experience being in the genres of fantasy and science
fiction. I have recently made a website to do my freelance work out of,
FawkesEditing.com. I would greatly appreciate any support in spreading
the word about it.
I hold an English degree with honors from Dixie State University, where I wrote my thesis on the worldwide appeal of Harry Potter. I served as a fiction editor and managing editor for the literary journal The Southern Quill. Today, I do work through a New York Times best-selling author. When not editing, I'm penning my own stories and running a writing tip blog. I also serve as a writing coach on WritersHelpingWriters.net (home of the Emotion Thesaurus). My writing tip articles have appeared on Grammar Girl and in classrooms; my "story dissections" have hit the front page of Hypable three times, and my series on Christopher Nolan's Interstellar has been turned into its own unit in a creative writing class.
My lifelong dream has been to work in the fiction industry, and I'm so glad I live this reality. I love waking up to my work every day. Help me spread the word of my new editing website, and all your wildest dreams will come true. ;)
