Wordsmithereens is a whenever-I-feel-like-it column where I blast the hell out of some nitpicky topic pertaining to diction, editing, self-editing, or writing. Why? Because I’m anal-retentive with a hyphen, that’s why.
I’m Lee Allen Howard. I’ve been a professional writer since 1985 and presently work in the software industry. (Why do fiction writers and editors pretend like they don’t have day jobs? I like to eat just like everyone else!) I also edit fiction. I’ve done book layout and publishing consultancy.
I write horror, dark crime, and psychological thrillers. And technical manuals. All terribly horrifying.
A long time ago I earned a BA in English from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. I also received an MA in Biblical Studies from CI School of Theology and an MA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University.
