Dave Reed

Dave Reed is a Story Grid Certified Editor and an award-winning author of science fiction and fantasy from San Antonio, Texas. After slogging alone for years through the dark in search of narrative enlightenment, Dave came to Story Grid on the recommendation of his writing coaches. Here, he found the engineering light for stories his inner software developer had been seeking all along.

Although he’s a literary omnivore as a reader, as an editor Dave’s specialties are Action, Love, Thriller, and War genres, preferably in dark fantasy, gritty sci-fi, and steamy contemporary settings. He also adores working in certain niches of Big Idea nonfiction such self-improvement, software, business, and writing craft.

As the founder of BookShaman.com, what Dave loves most is searching through the dark side-by-side with likeminded authors of all skill levels. Together, we can take the fight to Resistance in search of great stories to bring back for the people.
