Bibliomancer Editing


Saint Paul, MN



Fiction, Speculative Fiction, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Spirituality, Religion


If you’re an ambitious creator who’s owning your weird (or your wyrd), I’m the editor for you. I specialize in speculative fiction (SFF and literary) and in nonfiction exploring psychology, spirituality, and personal development.

In all of my editing work, I strive to hit that happy medium where constructive critique meets creative respect. I have an honors degree in English and Creative Writing from Williams College, and I was an editorial intern with Red Wheel/Weiser Books and with Milkweed Editions. I’ve also worked for two literary arts organizations.

Some of my favorite focus areas include:

- science fiction, fantasy, alternate history, magic realism / magical realism, retellings
- mythology and folklore, transpersonal psychology, eco-spirituality, paganism, witchcraft, tarot
- LGBTQIA+ characters and topics, diverse worldbuilding

I live in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota, on the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe and Dakota peoples, where I share a home with my partner and our disconcertingly friendly cat.
