Sue Toth: I’ve been a lover of the English language for as long as I’ve been able to read. My entire career has been dedicated to either writing and editing or teaching others how to write and edit. I teach writing and editing at the college level and teach fiction editing at the University of San Diego. For the past 20 years, my specialty has been in collaborating as an editor with fiction authors to get turn their books into the ones that readers can’t put down.
