OWNER AND LEAD EDITOR

 

I love working on stories because I believe in the power of words. Stories can change lives and create magic. My goal in editing is to help authors maximize the effect of their writing.

Besides editing, I also write queer contemporary romance. My first series, the Juniper Creek Golden Years novels, will be released in 2023! Here's my author website.

In my spare time, I devour as many books as I can; my latest reads and reviews are on my author Instagram. I also love travelling and baking, and part of my heart resides in Scotland, where I completed my university degree. I live in Calgary, Alberta with my game-loving spouse and our adorable fur-baby.
