Hi there. I’m Rich. I love talking about mysteries, but there’s such a taboo about spoilers that it’s hard to get up a good conversation about mystery technique. This site is a place to talk about mysteries without having to mince words or tiptoe around plot twists.
I’m a freelance developmental editor and mystery fan. I mostly work with self-published authors of genre fiction, helping them to polish and improve their drafts ready for publication. I particularly specialise in mystery or mystery-related techniques: clueing, foreshadowing, managing audience suspicions and constructing twists and surprises.
My main editing website should be online in February. In the meantime, if you’ve written a mystery you’d like to me to take a look at, or just want to talk about mysteries in general, drop me an email at thewanderingeditor [at] gmail [dot] com.
