I have ten years of experience managing MinnSpec, a science fiction and fantasy writer’s group. At workshops I coach fellow writers through the revision process. I have six years of experience as a biologist at the University of Minnesota, where I wrote lay and technical scientific writing and edited for colleagues. I can bring your speculative fiction to life and I can understand your dissertation. Biopunk and biology fact are my specialties. I have written lay nonfiction for Carleton College, the American Society of Plant Biologists, the University of Minnesota, and LKT Laboratories. I wrote and edited the dissertation “Functional Characterization of Amino Acid Permeases in Rice and Liverwort.”
