Hello... I’m Lori, a longtime magazine writer and editor.

I’ve spent the bulk of my career writing, editing, assigning, proofreading, and copy editing news and long-form journalistic pieces for multiple magazines in Canada and the US. I'm now offering ghostwriting and line (stylistic) editing services for aspiring authors.

With a degree in Journalism and certificate courses completed in Stylistic Editing, I'm editing and ghostwriting fiction and non-fiction book-length work. I help up-and-coming writers massage and shape text til it sings.

In me you will encounter a sharp, deadline-oriented writer and editor you can count on, with sage experience, a friendly manner, and a zest for books!
