Personal Biography

I’m an editor, researcher and writer with an eclectic professional background. I’ve worked as a writing and literature instructor at post-secondary institutions, a course developer for online writing courses, a transcriber/editor at the provincial legislature, a legislative editor, and a music teacher. I can be a pedantic grammarian, if required, or an astute literary critic and sensitive reader. I enjoy research and fact-checking, and I’m an absolute nerd for anything related to Victorian literature, British history, Romantic-era music, architecture and product design, and all things food — especially recipe books.
