Personal Biography

I love language and enjoy tackling a wide range of editing and writing projects. I’ve been a freelancer, working mainly as a book editor, since 1997. Before that I was a career newspaper journalist for more than 20 years (positions included news editor and books editor at The Globe and Mail in Toronto, and political reporter at the Edmonton Journal).

Most of my clients these days are mainstream publishing houses, but I welcome inquiries through my personal website. Some of the books I have worked on are listed on my website.

My major interests include literature and music, and I am a recorded singer-songwriter. I also hold editing workshops “for writers too.”
