Professional Experience
I'm a Toronto-based freelance writer, editor, researcher and mentor, with 20 years' experience. My solid reputation is built on eagle-eye attention to detail, engaging text, comprehensive research and never-missed deadlines.
With extensive experience in magazines, book and custom publishing, and marketing and communications, I work on everything from adult and children's fiction and non-fiction, consumer and trade magazines, (e)newsletters, bios, ads and POS materials to brochures, web copy/blog posts, scripts/speeches, reports/manuals, curatorial content and book reviews. My company is Planet Word.
I've created a substantial body of freelance work, with a diverse and notable range of publication credits, interests and clients, including The Globe and Mail, Art Gallery of Ontario, Owlkids Books, House of Anansi Press, TC Media Inc., Toronto Foundation, Dundurn Press, PwC Management Services, Ontario Dental Association, D.F. Plett Historical Research Foundation, Canadian Children's Book News, McMichael Canadian Art Collection, Oxford Properties Group, Quill & Quire, Upon A Star Books/Victorine Publishing, Havergal College and the College of Physical Therapists of British Columbia.
I'm a mentor for novice writers via PWAC's Toronto chapter and for novice editors via Editors Canada's Toronto branch. I'm co-chair of Editors Toronto; administrative director of Rowers Reading Series; and vice-president of Canadian Authors Association, Toronto branch. I also volunteer my time as a writer and editor for BoldFace, the blog of Editors Toronto; as proofreader of Hook, Line & Chapter, a newsletter of Canadian Authors Association; as a copy editor and proofreader of Networds, the blog of PWAC Toronto, and Pulse, the enewsletter of PWAC Toronto. I'm also spilling ink for my first book, a YA novel.
