I provide quality control for every word. With a background as managing editor for a weekly newspaper, following four years as copyeditor, I maintain a comprehensive knowledge of Canadian Press Style. As owner of my own company, I have most recently copyedited a book of memoirs about blue-water sailing and acted as editor for a self-published book of editorial cartoons. I am available for all levels of editing as well as writing opportunities.
