Hi, I'm Lisa,
I am a professional editor of Indigenous heritage (Mi’kmaq) who specializes in developmental editing, copy editing, and sensitivity editing. My passion is guiding authors to their perfect manuscript through the editing process, so they have a book they are proud of and ready to publish.
I work with authors from a place of compassion and understanding. It is nerve-wracking to hand over a book that you have worked hard on for months, or even years. It can be challenging to hear constructive criticism about something you have poured your heart into. I truly believe that an author-editor relationship based on comfortability and honesty is essential to a book reaching its fullest potential.
I have successfully helped many clients with their editing needs and have done so through fostering genuine and supportive connections. Clear communication helps to get to the root of any struggles with a manuscript and ensure it becomes the best version of itself. I work as a team with my authors — we both want the book to succeed!
If you are looking to place your book in good hands, you’ve found them. I am not just a professional editor - I am your trustworthy guide and confidant.
the power that stories hold.
I believe voices from all backgrounds, experiences, and parts of the world are needed in the publishing industry.
The mutual trust between client and editor is essential; without trust, there is nothing. It is important that my authors feel confident when working with me and trust me with their book.
genuine connections & communication.
Open communication is absolutely essential in the editing process. I honour authors by communicating openly, listening well, and being approachable.
precision & professionalism.
Editing is about being as precise as possible and delivering expert services. I honour that my authors have chosen my expertise to help them transform their book.

WHAT WRITERS ARE SAYING
“I worked with Lisa in order to get help with a book I am writing. She was not only extremely professional, but also friendly and very easy to work with. She delivered the work to me on time, and kept me up to date on progress, especially with some of the more difficult files that she worked on. I would highly recommend her — and in fact will likely be contracting with her again as I move into the later stages of my book. Great work!”
