Denise Logsdon

artful editor


Denise Logsdon is an editor and ghostwriter. She began her career more than twenty-five years ago as an in-house technical editor for environmental scientists. Since then, she has worked with countless scholars, journalists, and authors of literary fiction and memoir. She has edited a broad spectrum of genre fiction from middle grade to erotica but feels most at home in science fiction, fantasy, and historical fiction. A California native, she ventured out of state long enough to earn an MFA in creative writing from Columbia University and promptly returned to the San Francisco Bay Area.
