In addition to a decade of editing IGMS, Schubert also served three and a half as Managing Editor of Diversity Woman Magazine, two and a half years as Executive Editor of NC Career Network Magazine, and in 2019 he was both a Fiction Editor and a Non-Fiction Editor for the online literary journal South 85.
Schubert insists, however, that his greatest accomplishment came during college, when his self-published underground newspaper made him the subject of a professor's lecture in abnormal psychology. He holds a BA from Gettysburg College in Gettysburg, PA, and an MFA from Converse College in Spartanburg, SC.

Schubert teamed up with the amazing group of writers at MagicalWords.net as a blogger and editor of a book collecting key essays from the site. The book, a how-to writing guide titled How To Write Magical Words: A Writer's Companion, was released by Bella Rosa Books in January of 2011, featuring David B. Coe, Faith Hunter,
Misty Massey, A.J. Hartley, C.E Murphy, Stuart Jaffe, and Schubert offering insights into the craft and business of writing fiction. Click here to read one of the essays in the book for free.
The On Writing section of this website contains the article, "Metaphors, Similes, and Analogies, Oh My..." reprinted from the Magical Words How-To book. Below that is a list of "Basic Definitions Every Writer Should Know," expanded from the version that appears in the book.
Published in 2008, Schubert's novel Dreaming Creek--a mystery with a Twilight Zone twist--is currently out of print.
