A woman of many hats (and words)! Over a 25-year career, I have written and researched: magazine articles, news stories, restaurant reviews, websites, and radio and television documentaries. I have edited: books, booklets, articles, brochures, annual reports, teachers’ guides, websites and news releases. I have presented: workshops on communicating skills, writing basics, and dealing with the media. I am now senior editor of The Writing, a new team of efficient, experienced and exceptionally good-natured writers, editors and translators. From Canada’s splendid East Coast we work with international clients and Canadian clients working internationally.
