If you ever wanted to know how many times Oscar says “jackass” in an episode, or what an actors favorite episode is her work books are required reading.
From her website:
I’ve been writing and editing for decades, or at least, it feels that way because I’ve covered a lot of ground in my career. I thought I was going to grow up and be an advertising copywriter, but my love of print media took over. I took my first job in the business as a junior-nothing-nobody at Maclean’s magazine, followed by slightly more elevated editorial position at Flare. I was laid off in the ’90s as the recession hit. Armed with a slim writing portfolio, I managed, by some miracle, to snag freelance assignments for Chatelaine, Canadian Living and The Toronto Star. I was on my way to becoming a bona fide freelance writer.
If you have a project, you’d like to get going, have a story that needs to be written, require advice on freelancing, or just want to say hi, just send me an email. I look forward to connecting with you.
