Hi, I’m Lindsay.

I am an editor, writer, and podcaster living in the Haliburton Highlands of Ontario. My pronouns are she/her, and my background is in English literature (University of Guelph). At the moment I am winding up Simon Fraser University’s Editing Certificate (with an expected completion date of autumn 2021).

I have an abiding love of language, story, grammar,
etymology, and the Oxford comma. I like nothing more than to tinker with words in order to find their perfect flow and meaning.

When not editing, I am a branch assistant at the Haliburton County Public Library. In this way I ensure that ALL of my working hours are spent surrounded by books in one way or another.

Outside of work, I read a ton of books (click here for my all-time favourites), write fiction, essays and book reviews, and co-host a podcast called Story Girls: A Fortnightly Podcast About Books, with a Dash of Absurdity. I am a proud student of Juniper Creative Academy, and you can find some of my writing at Write or Die Tribe. I also have three cats who demand quite a lot of time and attention.
