Writing and Editing by Brian Sexton


My name is Brian Sexton. I am a writer and editor living in Sacramento, California.

Sometimes I work in the San Francisco Bay Area—mostly Silicon Valley. Sometimes I work in coffee shops.

My writing site is pretty simple for now—mostly text, which seems appropriate.

Work Samples

Below are several examples of my writing and editing work spanning over twenty years. I plan to post more soon, but please feel free to inquire if there’s anything else you’d like to see.
