I’m a long-time (don’t ask) professional editor with many years of experience writing and editing in a variety of formats, from newspapers to magazines to books and business websites. Have a BA in journalism, magazine focus, summa cum laude; diplomas in TESL and TOEFL, and thirteen years of teaching English at the College of New Caledonia. I am also a member of the Professional Editors Association of Vancouver Island and former member of the board of the Victoria Writers’ Society.

I’ve written and edited a variety of content, including agriculture, health, First Nations issues, general news, memoir, timber, pulp, paper, packaging and real estate.

Writing creative non-fiction, reading all stripes of novels and newspapers, coffeeshops and friends are the other ways I spend my time. Sometimes I even go to the pool or clean house. Would rather talk writing and books.
