“To write well is to think clearly. That’s why it’s so hard.” —David McCullough

 

Personal Biography

A former small press owner and book industry buyer, I have worked as a full time freelance editor and ghostwriter since 2011. In that time, I’ve had the privilege of working on hundreds of manuscripts for unpublished, self-published, and traditionally published authors alike. Here on the Island, I have done work for TouchWood Editions, Brindle & Glass, and Heritage House and have edited a number of books that have found their way onto the BC Bestsellers list.
