Ceileigh Mangalam – Editor

Freelance editor of contemporary fiction, fantasy, and some trade nonfiction, based in Vancouver.


Hi there! I'm Ceileigh and I've been a freelance editor for ten years. I specialize in structural and developmental editing for contemporary fiction, thrillers, and fantasy.

As a Vancouver-based editor, I also love editing books based in British Columbia and other parts of western Canada (both fiction and nonfiction).

Whether you need someone to help you map out your three-volume series or fill in the plot holes of your mystery thriller, I'm your editor. Let's write!
