Meet the Editor

IMG_0100.jpg

 Hello! My name is Brenna Bailey-Davies, and I am a fiction editor and consultant.

I love working on stories because I believe in the power of words. Stories can change lives and create magic. My goal in editing is to help authors maximize the impact of their writing.

 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 baking, and part of my heart resides in Scotland, where I completed my university degree. I live in Calgary, Alberta with my game-loving husband and our adorable fur-baby.
