Faith Hickman Brynie is an experienced writer and editor of both nonfiction and fiction.
...
Reviewers consistently praise Brynie for her ability to express complex ideas clearly and simply.
She holds a Ph.D. in science education (curriculum and instruction) from the University of Colorado, Boulder. She is a former high school biology teacher and university professor. She was the first "Scholar in Residence" to serve the American schools overseas. She maintains a blog titled "Brain Sense" for Psychology Today, and she is a frequent contributor to the science magazine Odyssey. She has served as editorial director for Healthy Travel Media.

She has worked for major publishers as writer, substantive editor, developmental editor, copyeditor, and fact checker.
Fiction
Faith Brynie published her first fiction in 1992, but she's been a student of fiction all her life. She is a regular contributor to Magill's Literary Annual and Masterplots, both of which are literary criticism reference works published by Salem Press.
She is particularly interested in the horror, science fiction, thriller, and mystery genres, but she also writes and critiques mainstream and literary fiction.
...
"Sometimes fiction writers wonder whether they need a critique, developmental editing, or copyediting," Brynie says. She thinks a critique is often the best place to start. "Before you worry about polishing the language, it's important to build a solid foundation of fiction's elements. You want to make sure that your characters are rich, your plot is plausible (within the genre), and your theme and conflict are well developed," she says. When Faith Brynie critiques a work of fiction, she reads the entire manuscript (often several times over) and writes a 5-10 page criticism, outlining what she sees as the strengths and weaknesses of the work as a whole. She suggests ways of reorganizing the manuscript for content and structure. She offers advice on plot, character development, and narrative style. In sum, she provides the author with a blueprint for revision. Her clients learn more than what's wrong with their fiction. They learn how to make it right.
Her training as a scientist makes her detail oriented and precision driven. "I write nonfiction for a living," Brynie says, "but my passion is fiction. I love writing it and I love helping others shape their fiction works. There is no greater thrill than exercising the imagination-mine and theirs."
Brynie also guarantees confidentiality to all her clients
