Personal Biography

I founded HyperLife Editing Services in 2000 and have helped clients from around the world with a wide variety of projects. With a master’s degree in English from the University of Victoria (1976) and a bachelor’s degree from Dartmouth College (1972), I was an active member of a local writers’ group for two decades, helping to move the work of several co-members toward publication. Since then I have worked with several critique partners on fiction and nonfiction projects. My own essays, fiction and poetry have appeared in a variety of periodicals and anthologies. My book-length publications include a science-fiction novel (2014), an adventure novella (2013) and two collections of stories and essays (2014), as well as a mystery novel (2015). I like to spend winter months near sunny beaches — with laptop nearby to continue writing and editing work. I also enjoy playing and performing music (flute and African drums).
