As you can see if you explore my general website, I’m a writer and editor. I’ve published four books, and have written several others. I am currently working on one that I plan to publish in 2021. I’ve also written many smaller pieces — articles, essays, reviews, etc. — that have been published, both personal and professional.
I also have 25 years experience carrying out editing as part of my professional work as an academic librarian (books for publishers, articles for peer-reviewed journals), as well as for individuals in my work as a full-time freelance editor. I’ve served on the editorial boards for academic journals (and am on one currently) and have been the chief editor of two professional magazines. If you are interested in checking out the details, please see my résumé or list of publication credits.
My editing experience has been much beyond simply academic texts. I’ve also copyedited and proofread full books for major commercial and educational publishers in Canada. And as a freelance editor, I’ve edited novels, stories, booklets, letters, articles, and much much more, large and small.
My main aim is always to help you produce clear, clean, and simple writing, arranged in the best flow and with the exact right words, so that the reader is never puzzled or gets lost in jargon and poor organization.
I have both a BA(Hons) and an MA in English, and am a member of Editors Canada: check out my (brief) profile here.
