I’m an experienced editor who has been in the industry since 2005. A graduate of Ryerson University’s publishing program with a concentration in editing and the recipient of the Rosemary Shipton Award for Excellence in Book Editing, I have worked with clients including Oxford University Press, Harlequin Enterprises, Inhabit Education, ECW Press, Cineplex, the Michener Institute, and a wide range of independent authors.
I have experience in many genres, including romance, mystery, young adult, new adult, science fiction and space opera, fantasy and paranormal, children’s and middle grade (including levelled readers), memoir, literary criticism, scholarly non-fiction, and academic writing.
I’ve worked with debut authors (including writers, professors, and professional wrestlers) and New York Times and USA Today bestsellers. I employ a keen eye for detail and strong understanding of pacing, characterization, hooks, and just what makes a story work. I’m here to help authors achieve their best work.
