Be Creative

We love words even more than you do.

I started out as an editor in 2000 as a fiction editor for Harlequin Books where I acquired and edited manuscripts for almost seven years. My focus was primarily acquiring and doing structural and stylistic editing of women's fiction. I was also a senior editor and editorial director with Entangled Publishing (from 2011 to 2020). I'm highly practiced in works of fiction, children's books, technical and educational material, financial literature, and non-fiction works (memoirs, business books, textbooks). I work with many writers who self-publish and I understand the needs of writers looking to self-publish. 

Manuscript evaluations are a strength; I have literally done hundreds. The feedback I provide has properly shaped many people's books. I'm a skilled and thorough structural/substantive editor, stylistic editor, proofreader, and developmental editor.  

I'm quite accomplished at substantively editing business books, works of fiction and non-fiction, and managing/developing magazines and newsletters (writing, editing, managing staff, developing editorial content and calendars).

I was a member of the EAC Toronto branch executive, and was the newsletter chair/editor for the branch newsletter, Edition, for the 2009-2010 term, and was the English co-chair/editor for Active Voice, EAC's national newsmagazine, 2011-2012, and the Marketing and Public Relations co-chair from 2011-2012. Was the managing editor of Active Voice for a number of years. 

I have extensive experience as a trade magazine editor. I managed a Canadian health and wellness magazine (Life Peak) for two and a half years, and was the editor for a 16-page newsmagazine for veterinarians published by Elsevier Canada. I was editor for Optical Prism magazine, the magazine for eyecare professionals, and was the lead editor for the Food Security issue of Women and Environments International Magazine. Was the managing editor of Benefits Canada magazine for a year (2019).

I spent a year (2016) working as a health writer (web) for a Canadian publishing company and did the internal and external newsletters (and some other communications) for the Green Party of Ontario for two years. 

I have the following education credentials:
