Anything else you want to say about the kinds of projects or people or organizations you’d like to work with?
Story is the most important thing to me. I want to create games that people experience on an emotional level--I want people to feel things when they play and when they're done.

What abilities would you bring to a collaboration?
I'm an excellent storyteller. I'm a medievalist English prof and a fantasy novelist. I've also done a lot of short-story editing.
I'm great with language--I love language play and finding the exact right words. I'm good at both artistic language (like in novels, etc.) and practical language (communications, explanations, etc.)
I've collaborated a lot--my novel series the Eisteddfod Chronicles is co-written with my best friend, and we live on opposite coasts. I've coedited both short story and academic collections. I'm good in a pair or on a team, and I'm very much interested in working collaboratively.
