I spent five very bookish years as Managing Editor of Atlantic Books Today magazine and Projects Manager at the Atlantic Publishers Marketing Association. Before that, I was Associate Editor at Lifestyle Nova Scotia magazine. Since having kids, I’ve retired my 9-5 to stay home with the girls and pursue a professional freelance writing career.
