Personal Biography

I’m an editor and writer in Victoria, BC. I’ve worked for CBC Radio, the United Nations and other development agencies, and for myself. I recently upgraded my skills and, in 2018, graduated from Simon Fraser University’s Editing Certificate program. I’ve also had two novels published, Anna, Like Thunder (Brindle & Glass, 2018) and This Innocent Corner (Oolichan Books, 2010). So, I know what it’s like to edit and to be edited.

I’m passionate about literature, languages, my community, and the west coast of Canada.
