Meet The Editor
Hello! My name is Brenna Bailey-Davies, and I am a full-time freelance editor. I edit fiction for independent authors, and I have experience in both YA and adult fiction across the board: contemporary fiction, fantasy, science fiction, and historical fiction. I have my Editing Certificate from Simon Fraser University, I am a member of the Editor Network with Make Your Mark Publishing Solutions, I am a member of the Dot and Dash LLC editing team, I am a member of Editors Canada, and I have edited an Amazon bestseller.
I love working on stories because I believe in the power of words. Stories can have far-reaching impacts and can change lives. I also know how difficult it can be to write and revise a story, and I find joy in helping people tell their stories in the best way possible.
In my spare time, I devour as many books as I can; my latest reads and reviews are on my Instagram. I also love travelling, and part of my heart resides in Scotland, where I completed my university degree. I live in Calgary, Alberta with my husband and our adorable fur-babies.

I had the opportunity to work with Brenna Davies on two novel projects. Both times, I needed more than copy editing. Lurking doubts about the story prevented me from assessing it objectively. Brenna not only improved my manuscript from a clarity and grammar perspective—she intuitively zoned in on its shortcomings, offering solutions and valuable feedback on strengths and weaknesses. As a result of her input and seamless modifications, my confidence in the end product was restored. I particularly like the way she reacts to the story as a reader, commenting, “I laughed at this” or “I love this phrase,” for example, which allows me to experience my writing from the reader’s point of view. I highly recommend Brenna’s professional editing services for turning a work of fiction into a masterpiece!
