I provide editing and proofreading services to roleplaying game publishers. There’s a list of past projects below, including work on Warhammer, Conan and Call of Cthulhu. If you’d like to explore what I can do to help with your project, please do drop me a line.
I’m a word wrangler with a strong eye for detail and for the way that information needs to be structured and presented as a learning guide for a play experience. I can zap errors and see how to make your text smoother and clearer while working to your style guide and tone.
I’m also a system monkey with experience of lots of rulesets (including developing my own) and the way that mechanics contribute to the feel of play and a setting’s narrative physics.
Tim is a reliable and talented proofreader. He is careful and focused. Not only does he spot problems, he also suggests solutions. He has a good eye for spotting inconsistencies in design and layout, as well as in text.

As line developer for a handful of game lines, I’ve worked with many editors and proofreaders. I consider Tim to be one of the best, in either capacity. As an editor, he is thorough and has a keen eye for finding issues, and as a proofreader he is meticulously thorough. Furthermore, he dependably hits his deadlines. The only reservation I have about recommending Tim as an editor or proofreader is that if I praise his competence as much as it deserves, he’ll become too busy to work for me in the future.
