Today I welcome Thomas Weaver to the Legion team. Thomas is currently sharpening his copy editor’s eyeballs in readiness to receive the third Sleeping Legion novel, Operation Breakout, which is already with developmental editor, Corey Truax.
Welcome, Thomas, welcome.
Thomas Weaver is a writer, editor, and blogger who got into professional editing almost by accident years ago when a gamer friend from university needed someone to copyedit a screenplay about giant stompy robots (mecha). Having discovered that he greatly enjoys this kind of work, he’s been putting his uncanny knack for grammar and punctuation, along with an eclectic mental collection of facts, to good use ever since as a Wielder of the Red Pen of Doom.
Thomas is disabled and lives with his smugly good-looking twin brother Paul, who writes military science fiction and refuses to talk about his military service because he can’t (although he does offer snide comments about the portrayal of the military in fiction).
His list of non-writing-related jobs from the past includes librarian, art model, high school teacher, science lab gofer… Thomas has no spouse or offspring to tell you about, but he does have six cats. (The preferred term is Insane Cat Gentleman.) He currently spends his time blogging at North of Andover, reading, editing, and fending off cats who like his desk better than his twin’s.
Among other works, Thomas edited In Siege of Daylight (epic high fantasy) and The Madness Engine (military science fiction), and he’s happy to be joining the Legion.
