About me:

I meant to be a cartoonist—but there was too much to think through first, so I became a critic. I was Features Editor at Women Write About Comics for six years, and Editor in Chief for almost one. I still write critically there—you can support my unpaid criticism on Patreon—and at ComicsMNT and Shelfdust, as well as publishing occasional pieces elsewhere... such as the Guardian (of course). I'm working on my own comics projects, both as cartoonist, scripter and as commissioning editor, and provide freelance editorial and press release copy or advice for both solo cartoonists and comic book teams.


I edit indie comics (send me your thumbnails, your scripts, or any other format) at hourly rates, including several successful Kickstarted projects and the award winning Finding Home. I can edit yours, too. Email me if you need me! A one-off consultation is fine, as are rates inquiries. I proofread xyHt, and would love to pass my eagle eye over your comics project, trade journal, or any other copy!
