Primary contact: 
Experienced public speaker, available to talk to groups and associations about editors and editing.


I work on both non-fiction  and fiction by writers, academics, business professionals and bloggers, especially ESL authors. I am bi-lingual (Urdu and English) and love working on South Asian material.

I have a PhD in English Literature (Post-colonial literature and feminist literary theory), and have been writing and publishing as an academic for over ten years. I have also taught courses on academic writing, business communications and literary analysis to undergraduate students enrolled in university and college courses in both Ontario and Vancouver. Having provided commentary on more than 3,000 student essays over the years, I know exactly how to turn good ideas into well-presented ones through editing and proofreading.
