Hi, I’m Shelly!
I’m a Toronto-based book professional versed in editing, the publication industry, and the library sector where I currently work part-time as a public-facing librarian.
I am way too passionate about literature, especially when it comes to general fiction, YA books, romance novels, and graphic novels and manga. I also have an appreciation for a good memoir or finance book.
I have an Honours Bachelor of Arts from the University of Toronto with a double major in English and Media Studies where I graduated with High Distinction. I also earned my Master of Information (MI) from the same university where I specialized in Library and Information Sciences.
I have experience in editing a whole wide range of materials including academic essays, marketing materials, blog posts, novels, and manga scripts. I also have project management experience based off my years of publishing know-how that includes interning at a literary agency to attending book conventions as a reviewer. My unique perspective as professional reviewer and librarian allows me to really identify a novel’s strength from a consumer lens.
You’re also welcome to learn more about me via my instagram profile. In terms of personality, I often consider myself the human equivalent of a walking exclamation point.
