About

Linda is someone who loves the adventure of living in these unusual and often bizarre times. She is a positive person and brings that positivity to her work and gets the very best out of language. She believes we can have a better world through communication that has diversity, equity, and inclusion at its base. Linda understands how daunting the writing and publishing process can be, so her goal is to make the process easier and more enjoyable for authors so they can achieve the success they seek in their chosen field.

Having a broad background and insatiable interest in learning, Linda’s editing practice covers many disciplines and genres. From management to medicine, law to social science, literature to mathematics and philosophy, she has edited at all academic levels from undergraduate essays to doctoral thesis, and practical how-to papers.

Linda edited her first book in 2017 and since then has edited many books in diverse fields of interest, including self-help, exercise, spiritual development, historical fiction, fantasy, and literary fiction. She approaches each book with a particular affinity for keeping lines of thought clear and focused while wrapping them in language that shows them in their best light and intrigues the reader.

She was a part-time freelance editor for almost twenty years, then increased her entrepreneurial pursuit to full-time editing and writing back in 2015. Since then, she has refined her practice to full-time editing and in 2019 she won Entrepreneur of the Year for her editing practice.

Linda is a very talented freelance editor and specializes in making her clients’ words sparkle with authenticity, clarity, and conviction. She works from her home in Sarnia, Ontario.
