I'm a writer, knitter, freelance editor, and independent publisher. I've worked as an editor of both books and magazines for trade, literary, and nonprofit publishers. I'm a little too independent, so I now work for myself. My publishing web site is at www.nomad-press.com. My writing and artwork web site is at www.drobson.info. Neither of them gets updated often enough, so the most current information is likely to be here.
Between 1986 and 2000, I was a book editor at Interweave Press and also edited Spin-Off, the magazine for handspinners. From 1985 to 1986, I edited Shuttle Spindle & Dyepot for the Handweavers Guild of America. Before that, I was production editor at the University of Massachusetts Press. I've also been involved with several literary magazines, including The Port Townsend Journal and Assay. I'm currently a contributing editor for Pilgrimage.
Dogs (especially herding breeds) and obedience and agility training, although one of our dogs developed arthritis after she earned a CD (obedience title) and we wouldn't let her jump enough to work toward the next level. The next dog just was (and is) not interested in serious training. We now have a new rescue Border collie who has started classes. Cats (who don't believe in training, except of humans and dogs). Also books; hiking; natural and cultural history; rare breeds of sheep; plein air painting; knitting (of course); spinning (yarn, not whatever they do called spinning at athletic facilities); weaving and everything else a person can do with fiber; libraries and bookstores; yarn shops; publishing; collaborative and sustainable work and ways of living. And so on.
