I am a freelance book editor based in Victoria, British Columbia. I've worked in-house at Gaspereau Press (2003–2009) and at Nimbus Publishing (2010–2011). My areas of expertise are fiction and narrative non-fiction, and I take a particular interest in sustainability issues, natural history, memoir and travel.

In their own words

"What I admire most about her editing of fiction is that she has that rare ability to see 'the big picture' while remaining attentive to the subtleties of detail and language." Johanna Skibsrud (The Sentimentalists)

"It's a rare treat to find an editor who both listens to what a text says, and hears instinctively how it might say it better." George Sipos (The Geography of Arrival)

"Kate’s ability to see what a text needs is second to none, and I can always depend on her to finish projects on time and on budget. " Patrick Murphy, Managing Editor, Nimbus Publishing
