International Writer & Editor


I have over twenty years of editing and writing in numerous fields, from academic to legal, memoires to horror and everything in between. I began my own writing and editing business in 2009 through Pen & Pestle. I have currently entered into a partnership with two other writers to provide manuscript editing and critiquing services through CanAm Author Services. This new partnership will create a split in my workload between fiction editing through CanAm and academic, trade, and non-fiction writing and editing through Pen & Pestle.
