David Alderman

Sci-Fi/Fantasy Writer and Linguist
   United States
  |   Sterling, VA

Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $11

I love writing Science Fiction and Fantasy, but my specialty is creating fictional languages for fantasy worlds, peoples, and cultures to add depth, context, and authenticity to stories. As far as my writing style goes, I have a passion for wordsmithing and I fervently avoid cliches.

I have a Masters in linguistics with an expertise in the theoretical and practical mechanics of language. I also have a certificate in Teaching English as a Second Language and would be available to develop or teach lessons.
