Nico Westbrook is a freelance editor, sensitivity reader, and writer who has worked in both TTRPG spaces and on others’ independent projects.  He graduated with a BA in English Literature and Psychology in 2022, and while they have a particular passion for sci-fi and fantasy, they will happily read something from any genre. As a QTPOC, they love to uplift Own Voices stories, but they are happy to work with every enthusiastic author. He loves to work through a story’s world with its author and help with polishing books or other works.

When not reading or writing, they are usually playing video games, listening to podcasts, or trying to schedule the next session of their tabletop games.
