Eaton Krone is a sci-fi satire author who hit pause on his planned writing career over two decades ago to slave away in the fields of journalism, PR/communications and advertising – the latter devouring three quarters of his career-history pie chart along with a sizeable chunk of his sanity.

He’s done nearly everything copy- and language-related, from writing and editing to translation and proofreading across a wide spectrum of media.
