Stephen King said if you want to be a better writer, you need to do two things: read a lot and write a lot.

The Nonsense-Free Editor is all about giving writing and editing advice as well as in-depth story critiques of books, tv, and movies.

I’m an author of time travel and supernatural novels and a full-time editor with more than 12 years of experience shaping up novels of all genres. I’m also a full-fledged nerd with a grudge against the politics-infused laziness that has recently infected sci-fi and fantasy writing across every medium.

So if you want to write more, write better, and get a better idea of which shows are worth your time, tune in here.
