Shamrock Editing

New Westminster, BC V3M 4H4


As a freelance editor, I specialize in projects with independent and self-publishing authors, and have worked with more than 30 authors on 50+ manuscripts in many genres, both fiction and non-fiction.

I have also worked in the communications and publishing departments of non-profit organizations and professional associations where I provided writing, editing, proofreading, and layout for a variety of publications.

A graduate of the Print Futures: Professional Writing Program at Douglas College, I have also completed several courses from SFU's Writing and Publishing Program and am studying for certification with EAC.

I find working with manuscripts and building relationships with writers extremely rewarding. I enjoy helping new and experienced writers achieve their publishing goals.
