Welcome to A Writer's Roadmap
I'm Pat Dobie, a professional editor, a writer and a writing teacher. As an editor I work with writers of literary and commercial fiction across genres and categories. I also edit non-fiction (self-help, how-to and memoir) as well as short stories, plays, and essay collections. I have an MFA in Writing from Pacific University and my own work has been shortlisted for awards by the Historical Novel Society and the International 3-Day Novel contest.
A Writer's Roadmap is a place for me to publish everything I've learned about writing and the writing life.
