Freelance Book Editor
Trusted, Honest, Experienced
Over Thirty Years of Book Editing Experience
For over thirty years, I’ve been helping writers tell their stories—from a young student’s first written words, to a New York Times bestseller, from an author’s debut to someone writing his or her twentieth book. But no matter whom I’m working with, my commitment remains the same: to help each and every writer develop their best work.
About my Career
I have always been passionate about books and writing and reading, and I’ve been fortunate my career in communication has led me from teaching on the Canadian Prairies, to working in radio and television, to producing films, to editing at Canada’s largest publishing house.
As a young girl growing up on the Canadian prairies I used to wonder what it would be like to be an editor—although back then I wasn’t even sure what an editor did. I just knew that if Jacqueline Onassis worked as an editor, it had to be a pretty great job.
And I was right.
Everyone Has a Story to Tell, And I’d Love to Help You With Yours.
Some Inspiration For You
“Once a book is published, it no longer belongs to me. My creative task is done. The work now belongs to the creative mind of my readers. I had my turn to make of it what I would, now it is their turn.”
