I have a deep fascination for language and the myriad ways it can be manipulated to express ideas. Reading and writing are, in my experience, among the most satisfying pursuits a person can engage in. I have always been drawn to editing as I feel it brings together the enjoyment of reading with the gratification of creating beautiful prose.

I graduated with a Masters in Philosophy and since then have worked in various sectors including marketing, technology and publishing. My editorial experience includes commercial copy and academic research, but fiction remains my great passion.

Books have always been a part of my life. I started early on as a reader and would devour anything I could get my hands on, from non-fiction books to the many fantasy series I ended up falling in love with. When I went to West Chester University, I got my Bachelor’s in Literature.

From there, I became an author, working with a variety of different publishers, each one offering a unique experience. Collaborating with so many editors and experiencing what a difference they made on my work pushed me in the direction of turning my applied skills to freelance editing. As an editor, I’ve fallen in love with helping authors produce the best versions of their work possible.

In my free time, I have a penchant for board games, diner nights, and adventures.

Stories in all forms, from movies to video games to graphic novels, have been an integral part of my life from a very young age, but I’ve always loved books in particular. As soon as I could hold a crayon, I was creating elaborate picture books on stapled sheets of printer paper. Once I learned to write, written narrative became my obsession, and it’s remained so ever since.

I earned my BA in creative writing from the University of Washington, and I later returned to earn a certificate in editing. I’ve discovered that, almost as much as I enjoy creating my own stories, I love helping others polish, perfect, and streamline their work—breaking down a scene to discover precisely what isn’t working, hunting down plot holes and inconsistencies, and digging for the exact turn of phrase that will make a piece of dialogue sing.

Since beginning my career as an editor, I’ve had the opportunity to work on a wide variety of material (including memoirs, novels, novellas, and short stories) in multiple genres and at multiple stages in the publication process. Helping bring books to print is both a dream come true and an honor, and I’m thrilled to be joining the talented team at Evolved!

When I’m not editing, I’m often hiking, dancing (swing and Texas two-step), playing video games, or—of course—reading. After a recent move from Seattle to Austin, I also spend more time eating tacos than the average human.

Mike Robinson



A writer since age six, Mike Robinson is the award-winning author of ten books, including the dark urban fantasy trilogy “The Enigma of Twilight Falls” (The Green-Eyed Monster; Negative Space; Waking Gods). His short fiction has appeared in over twenty outlets, and he has sold work to Amazon Audible. A native of Los Angeles, he is a charter member of The Greater Los Angeles Writers Society (GLAWS), a freelance book editor as well as an active screenwriter and producer. A short sci-fi thriller he co-wrote, Chrysaline, is on ThinkShorts and making the film festival rounds.


My initial editing experience came in the swarms of prose I pumped out into the world, only occasionally into the world of actual magazines, anthologies or e-zines. Soon, as I began selling more regularly, and as publishers took note of my longer works, I began freelance editing.

In the past eight years, I’ve edited screenplays, memoirs, novels, children’s books and, would you believe it, epic narrative poetry. One of the novels I edited, Under the Tamarind Tree, was shortlisted among nine others for the 2014 Dundee International Book Prize. A charter member of The Greater Los Angeles Writers Society (GLAWS), I am also the managing editor of the organization’s official publication, Literary Landscapes, which features stories, excerpts, articles and poetry (see issues here). In addition, I belong to the editing collective Write For Success, for which I perform manuscript critiques and consultation.





Please stay tuned….
