I live and work in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada—birthplace of the majestic schooner Bluenose. I am an economist (applied development economics and environmental studies) and editor. My areas of expertise are applied economics, development economics, business, finance, politics, the environment, and sustainable development. I am a trained editor and have revised doctoral dissertations, masters theses, submissions to academic journals, and development bank papers. I also offer business writing services for websites and other advertising media.
English language editing for second language academics is a specialty. Throughout my writing and editing career, I have both written and revised studies, reports, and publications on a variety of topics related to business, economics, and the environment. I write with precision and economy. I organize concepts, ideas, and information with the reader in mind and never use jargon or references to theories that are not commonly discussed in the broader world. Good writing aims to respect the reader.
Writing fiction has been a life-long dream. After moving to Nova Scotia’s beautiful South Shore, with my husband and children, I enrolled in a writing course, at a local college, and studied the short story form. I also studied novel writing at Humber College’s prestigious School for Writer’s. In 2012, I published a short story in Riptides: New Island Fiction, Acorn Press, Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. A novel entitled Somewhere I Belong will be published in 2014, also by Acorn Press.
I presently work as a writer and editor and offer a variety of editorial services to international clients.
