About Me

Hi, I'm Jenn!

Editor. Writer. Reader. Mom.
Chocolate addict. Sports enthusiast.

I live in Ontario, Canada, with my husband, Nathan, our three beautiful and rambunctious boys—Jack, Nathan, and Ben; plus two fur babies—a Mastiff named Moose and a chocolate lab named Blue. 

When my laptop is closed, and my Kindle is turned off, I can be found watching sports (NHL- yes, I am a Leaf fan! and NFL) on TV with my hubby, playing with my kids, or cleaning up puppy poop.   

Why should you trust me with your book?​

  • Former Literary Intern at Corvisiero Literary Agency
  • Former Freelance Production Editor at Kensington Publishing Corp.
  • Former Freelance Proofreader at Kensington Publishing Corp.
  • Former Intern/Mentor/Reader at Entangled Publishing
  • Former Acquiring Editor/Developmental Editor at Breathless Press, Lycaon Press
  • Former writer/editor of technical manuals, safe operating procedures 
  • Former newspaper reporter (sports reporting and general interest stories)
  • Completed Ryerson University Publishing Certificate
  • Completed Special Designation Children’s Publishing 
  • Graduate Conestoga College: Radio & Television Broadcasting

  • I specialize in Young Adult, New Adult, and Adult fiction, with an emphasis on all genres of Romance and Mysteries (Suspense, Cozies, and Thrillers).
  • I’m currently not a good fit for Memoir, Sci-Fi, Horror, Middle Grade, Picture Books, or Graphic Novels.  
  • Although I can’t guarantee agent or editor interest or publication, I can promise to put my full knowledge and ability into each book that I am entrusted to work on. My goal is to help authors create a book they can be proud of.

Editing should be, especially in the case of old writers, a counselling rather than a collaborating task. The tendency of the writer-editor to collaborate is natural, but he should say to himself, “How can I help this writer to say it better in his own style?” and avoid “How can I show him how I would write it, if it were my piece?”
