Primary contact: 


Tereza is an avid reader and passionate writer with a thirst for quality and inspiring work.

She holds a B.A. Honors degree in English Literature and is a participant of the Acclaimed Professional Writing Conference – Paris Writer’s Retreat with Wendy Goldman-Rohm. 

Tereza runs her own freelance editing company, EDITER, and has edited numerous high-profile texts such as Portrait of an Artist by Hugo Huerta Marin, A Seat at the Table by Solange Knowles, and has had a long-standing working relationship with Switzerland-based author Fiona Hood-Stewart – a leading romance and historical fiction writer with seven best-selling novels under her belt. Tereza edited her most-recent novel The Woman Behind the Tattoo.

Tereza often contributes more than a basic level of editing for her clients. She is at ease in helping authors re-structure and even at times, re-write portions of their texts; adding to the composition of the work as a whole. It is this level of untiring commitment to the realization of the author's vision while maintaining a high standard of legibility and interest for the reader that has created a flourishing of freelance contracts for her in a very short time span.

Tereza is currently working on her first play, Two Can Play That Game and currently splits her time between Montreal, New York, and Switzerland.



I can always count on Tereza to complete copy-editing projects with tight deadlines. The time constraints do not prevent her from effectively doing her job, nor do they compromise her level of commitment and accuracy. I’ve been working with Tereza for over three years, and I have no intention of finding another copyeditor; she’s by far the best, and incredibly easy to work with.

– Publisher

What a pleasure to have worked with such an amazing editor! Her dedication knows no bounds; she’s hard-working and often goes above and beyond her scope as an editor. I highly recommend working with her – you won’t regret it. She’s simply outstanding!

– Fiction Writer

As a first-time author, I did not know what to expect regarding the editing process. Tereza was there for me every step of the way and “held my hand” throughout. Her perfectionism and professionalism are incredibly rare to find, and it is clear that she takes pride in her work. Because of her help, my book received tremendous praise which I would not have received otherwise. I’m looking forward to working with her on my next project.
