Profile

As a Certified Professional Editor, I bring to you over 25 years of editorial experience, including 18 years as managing editor for a trade book publisher and 8 years as editor with an educational publisher.  

I have a degree in English literature from the University of Toronto and am a graduate of the Banff Publishing Workshop (Books; Book Editing). I'm easy to work with, and I love tackling even the most difficult text and making it accessible and enjoyable to read. And I'm bilingual - je suis très à l'aise en français aussi. (I edit in English only, but do comparative editing [French/English] and translation [French to English]). 

Let's talk about how I can help you make your texts even better.
