I hold a B.A. in English with honors, read widely in all genres, and write primarily speculative fiction. I'm a native English speaker of real American English, though I'm also familiar with British English conventions. My writing style is clean, clear, plain and upfront, though I can rise to the occasion if poetic description is called for.
My spelling, punctuation, and grammar skills don't rely on computer programs; I actually know what I'm doing, and if I have any doubts, I can consult Strunk and White.
Even so, my writing isn't stilted and formal. Modern writing is casual and free-flowing like real conversations, without the "ums" and spur-of-the-moment word choices that can lead to misunderstandings. Even fragments are acceptable, so long as their meaning is clear.
In short, I understand the unique challenges and conventions of novel and story writing much better than the typical high school English teacher.
