Greetings, Spekkies and welcome back! Today we’re delving into the mind of the illustrious Kathy Tyers!
New York Times bestselling author Kathy Tyers Gillin developed her editorial skills over thirty-plus years of writing and publishing fiction and nonfiction. Her original titles include the Firebird series, two licensed Star Wars © Expanded Universe novels, Shivering World, Crystal Witness, and One Mind’s Eye. The final novel in her Firebird science fiction series, Daystar, won the Carol Award for speculative fiction from American Christian Fiction Writers in 2013.
Now specializing in freelance editing, Kathy has seen her clients place their books with major and smaller publishing houses in both Christian and secular markets, and some have published independently. Many of her recently published editing projects have been speculative fiction or scholarly nonfiction. She has taught for the Christian Writers Guild and the Mount Hermon Christian Writers Conference, specializing in coaching fiction writers to utilize deep, limited third-person point of view. Her clientele includes authors from the US, Canada, England, Scotland, Papua New Guinea, Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia, and New Zealand.
