I have over thirty years of experience as an editor (books, book chapters, scientific journal articles, theses, dissertations, grants, popular writing) and writer (chapters, scientific journal articles, grants, nonfiction and fiction). Nonfiction prize winner in Lit. mag. contests, finalist in Lit. mag. fiction contest. My goal is to help writers produce a manuscript that expresses their message best in a voice appropriate to their intended audience. I ensure that their material exhibits correct grammar and syntax and adheres to the style required: Concise and descriptive for academic articles, chapters, or books and dramatic for popular writing.
Studied philosophy at the undergraduate level in Canada and at the graduate level in England.
In 1977, I qualified as a secondary school teacher from the Cambridge Institute of Education, Cambridge University. During the 1980s I was a contributing editor for Today's Parent, Canada's leading parenting magazine, and I have published numerous articles, reviews and letters, including two short letters in The Economist, the next best thing to winning a Pulitzer. Now semi-retired, I spend some of my time teaching Microsoft Word to seniors, most of whom are younger than me.
