“Working with Editors in the Publishing Process”
In addition to a career as a journalist, newspaper editor, publisher and media executive, Robb Grindstaff has written fiction most of his life. The newspaper biz has taken him and his family from Phoenix, Arizona, to small towns in North Carolina, Texas, and Wisconsin, from seven years in Washington, DC, to five years in Asia. Born and raised a small-town kid, he’s as comfortable in Tokyo or Tuna, Texas. The variety of places he’s lived serve as settings for the characters who invade his head.
He has four novels published with Evolved Publishing – Slade, Turning Trixie, Hannah’s Voice, and Carry Me Away. His novels are best classified as contemporary southern lit. In 2022, Evolved also launched June Bug Gothic: Tales from the South, a collection of Robb’s short stories.
Robb is also a sought-after fiction editor, with editing clients from around the world, including agented, traditionally published, and best-selling independent authors. His articles on the craft of writing fiction have appeared in various writer magazines and websites. He also has taught writing courses for the Romance Writers of America (even though he’s not a romance writer), Romance Writers of Australia (even though he’s not Australian), and is an instructor at the Novel-in-Progress Book Camp.
Robb now resides in the Ozarks of Missouri, where he writes and edits full time.
