A bit about me …
I am a writer and editor. I’ve published four books, have written several others, and have been the editor of many more. I am currently writing two new books, and in the past have also written many other pieces – articles, essays, reviews, and more – that have been published, both personal and professional.
I 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 freelance editor. I’ve served on the editorial boards for academic journals and have been the chief editor of two professional magazines.
My editing experience has been much beyond simply academic texts. I’ve also edited books for major commercial and educational publishers in Canada. And as a freelance editor, I’ve edited novels, stories, booklets, articles, and much much more, large and small.

what myclients say
Wayne was not only the consummate editing professional, he actually improved on the work done by other editing professionals before him. Even though the subject-matter was entirely unfamiliar to him, he took responsibility for acquainting himself with a wide range of information, developed a working strategy, and saw it through. The [project] is now deeply in debt to his skills and his dedication. I cannot recommend him highly enough. – Tim B.
I hired Wayne to do the editing for our professional association’s study guide. It was a massive undertaking and hiring him was the best decision I made. His attention to details, professionalism, and high level of editing work made our project a success. I would recommend his services with great enthusiasm! – François P.
Wayne did substantive editing and copyediting for a full length novel that I completed. Communication was great as were his rates. Some good editing work was done on the novel that was really needed and appreciated. – ADB
Working with Wayne was a great experience. He is an editor who will not sway from the writer’s intentions or creative point of view. Wayne was able to effectively communicate and present ideas about my writing without ever changing the original narrative. He is very proficient when it comes to the knowledge of different genres and this made it easy to get along with him. If you are looking for an editor, it is important to choose someone who can accommodate your style. I would highly recommend working with Wayne! – NC
