Allison Alexander

Hello! I’m Allison (she/her). I’m an editor, writer, gamer, and geek. I specialize in developmental and line editing for science fiction and fantasy.

I have a collaborative approach to the writer/editor relationship. I make it a point to respect your author’s voice. I’m here to help you write your book, not to fundamentally change it or mess with your style. I always suggest solutions for potential problems and articulate why they are problems; this way, you can consider alternate fixes if my suggestion doesn’t fit your vision.

In my free time, you can find me drawing, painting, playing D&D, and humming tunes from The Legend of Zelda.
