Welcome to my website. It contains information about me and my work as a teacher, editor and book doctor, as well as recommended readings and links on writing and publishing and tips and inspirations from great writers. I also feature some of my own writing.

My blog features occasional writing experiments, as well as posts on topical matters and reviews on books and other resources that might be useful for writers. I also post links about these sorts of things on Twitter and Tumblr.
