"Scholar, writer, and award-winning editor”

About the Editor

To editing I bring a sharp eye for detail, a keen ear for voice, and a deep respect for the author’s vision and the reader’s expectations. I have years of experience as a writing coach; I have published poetry, fiction, and scholarly writing, and I am the founding editor of The Journal of Juvenilia Studies. For my work on The Little Third Reich on Lake Superior, by Ernest Zimmermann (U of Alberta P), I received the 2015 Tom Fairley Award for Editorial Excellence from Editors Canada. In academic editing, I value logic and argument as highly as I value style.
