Editor, Writer, and Researcher
June 30, 2014 11:32 AM

I'm a freelance editor, writer, and researcher with twenty years of experience and a passion for clear, beautiful prose, and I can make your work not only free of mechanical errors but also concise, precise, and engaging.

- Very experienced copy editor, proofreader, and researcher.
- Most of my editorial experience has been in legal and tax publishing, but I've also done some work in academic and educational publishing, and in fiction.
- I'm very knowledgeable about numerous crafting mediums (i.e., all types of needlework, stained glass, fine art), home renovations, and decorating.
- For samples of my writing ability, check out my blog The Knitting Needle and the Damage Done, which is a knitting blog that I endeavour to make so entertaining and informative that even a non-knitter can read it without pain.
- Don't let my Toronto location or Canadian spellings put you off. I can work remotely and in Canadian, UK, or US diction, just as you wish.
- I have a B.A. in English from York University in Toronto, a diploma in Book & Magazine Publishing from Centennial College, and a handful of George Brown College certificates in, respectively, Fine Arts, Interior Decorating, and Desktop Publishing.

I'd love to hear about your work and to provide you with a no-obligation quote.
