Profile

You want your words to flow; you want your reader to understand you easily. Let me help you with that.

I can line edit, copyedit, and proofread your material. If you need an index for the back of your book, I can make you one.

I aim to be as unobtrusive as possible and to let the author's voice shine through. I enjoy helping the reader to have a feeling of flow.

I volunteer as the recording secretary for the Editors Canada national executive council and I am on the executive of the Indexing Society of Canada (ISC/SCI).

You can read more about my work at my website.

“Gentle, wise, and perceptive, Alex lent her skills and patience as editor for my latest book. She has a breadth of vision for placement while never missing a ‘jot or tittle.’  Fun to work with, firm and helpful, her humorous “but the choice is yours,” will stay in my head.  A true professional with high standards and excellent work habits, I am so fortunate to have worked with her on a sometimes difficult manuscript!” — David Morrison, Witness

“Alex provided excellent proofreading for our textbook in a friendly and efficient way. Due to publisher’s constraints we had a very short timeline for the proofreading. She worked with us to deliver the proofreading efficiently and on time, and I am very happy to recommend her work to others.” — Mark Lewis, The Mathematics Behind Biological Invasions

“To put it simply, I look at the indexes and see great minds at work on a great work. I’m grateful to everyone who was involved with the project and particularly to the thorough and thoughtful indexers who worked so hard and so quickly to help this report’s information reach as many people as possible.” — Ryan Van Huijstee, managing editor, MQUP (publisher, Truth and Reconciliation Reports)
