M. Talmage Moorehead

I quit my medical career (pathology) on June 27th, 2014 and haven't looked back.

Now I'm a Certified Story Grid Editor, a fiction writer, a blogger, and good pals with a Labrador Retriever named Halo.

My developmental editing site is here:

My blog is here:

As a Story Grid Developmental Editor, I specialize in helping novel writers achieve strong narrative drive. My subspecialties are Science Fiction, Young Adult, and Thrillers. I encourage writers to include a love story subplot if it suits their story and genre.

If you've read my blog, you've probably noticed that I write about things I consider important to humanity's survival and happiness. So it's only natural that as a developmental editor, I work with fiction writers who tackle serious topics.

To me, the most valuable thing about a story is its ability to enlighten our thinking and broaden our perspectives while we're having fun. What else does that?

Best of everything to you and yours,

M. Talmage Moorehead, MD
