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). I am a graduate of Simon Fraser University’s Editing Certificate.
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. My professional editing clients include Ivey Publishing, The Collaborative Summer Library Program, and Juniper Editing & Creative.
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 also have two cats who demand quite a lot of time and attention.
