I am a freelance writer and author. I have written short stories, articles, recipes, puzzles, quizzes, and essays mostly for and about children. I have been published in various children’s magazines such as Teen Breathe, Spider, Highlights, Girls’ World, Animal Tales, and Bazoof. My books include Your Passport to Canada (Capstone, pending publication) as well as five French ebooks aimed at teens with intellectual disabilities (Service national du RÉCIT en adaptation scolaire, CSDM).

I also proofread children’s books for Auzou. So far I have worked on the English texts of 34 picture books (kamishibai style) and a visual dictionary.

I hold a BA in translation (French/English) and have translated material in many fields, including a ten-year stint translating product descriptions and manuals for the toy company Alex Brands (bath toys, outdoor equipment, science kits, board games, arts & crafts).

Services Offered

I am available for writing, ghostwriting, and proofreading English content for children of all ages (fiction and nonfiction). I can also review material from aspiring children’s writers (short stories, articles, queries, cover letters). I will pinpoint areas needing improvements, help you polish your final draft, and suggest markets for your work.

Special Interests

Short stories, articles, activities, educational content, and books for children of all ages.
