writer, editor, smug pickler

My background as a college English instructor and my love of books in general have led me naturally to the freelance editor's trade. Since 2004, I've edited dozens of books, mainly on subjects related to Maritime history and culture (see below for a selected list of titles I have had the pleasure to work on as an editor, all for Nimbus Publishing). Currently, I am editing an anthology of sea stories from the early twentieth century Halifax professor and chronicler Archibald MacMechan. Stay tuned for updates on this exciting book-to-be!  Need an editor? Please contact me and we can discuss your project.
