About me


Please visit my Shiny Ideas website for more information.

I am an experienced editor and writer, living in Toronto with two cats and 2000 books.

I have edited projects ranging from website content to academic books, to business and educational materials as well as short fiction.

In addition to holding a BA and MA in the Philosophy of World Religions, I am a certified Editor and a member of the Editors’ Association of Canada.

I have worked with many people whose first language is not English, and I am adept at correcting text to ensure that it is written clearly, in proper English. My studies of Russian, German, French, and classical Hebrew in university have sharpened my grammatical skills and further enhanced by ability to recognize sound writing.

My writing itself ranges just as widely; I have published articles on hobbies for the 50+ age group and on socializing feral cats, and I regularly write articles on the business side of the anime industry as well as reviews of cultural events and books for cultural and book blogs. I have written several novels and a non-fiction book that are currently under consideration for publication.
