At Large

book packaging & creative direction

From concept to finished product, I make books happen. Book proposals and plans, editing and proofreading, design and layout, digital and print production—I care about the details, the process, and the relationships critical to the production of good books. My goal always is to deliver quality, accurate work on time and on budget.

editing & proofreading

Over the course of 25 years working with some of the most recognizable brands in the world, including Penguin, HarperCollins, Robert Rose, Whitecap, Pearson, and Nelson, I’ve helped to publish some of Canada’s most-loved authors, including Jamie Oliver, Rose Murray, Rose Reisman, Plum Johnson, Will Ferguson, and Joseph Boyden.

project management & book production

As a hands-on editor and experienced production manager, I’ve successfully produced hundreds of books to exceptional standards and have overseen the professional publication of hundreds more. I can help you navigate professional book publishing standards and conventions, and understand when breaking them is innovative or a risk.
