I’m so very pleased to present to you … MY EDITOR – RACHEL SMALL!!! This is the person who makes me and my writing look so good! Rachel has also edited for a couple of other IslandCatEditions authors, Timothy L. Phillips and J. Michael Fay. But here she is now with her own first collection of short stories, co-authored with Carrie Mumford, and recently published! (I sure hope there are no typos or other errors in this promotion, Rachel. I’m nervous!)
What is your latest release and what genre is it? None of These are True: A Collection of Short Stories is my first publication, co-authored with Carrie Mumford. The stories could be classified as literary/women’s fiction.
Quick description: It’s a collection of ten stories dedicated to female friendship. Some of the stories are about heartbreak and loss, some are funny, some nostalgic. We wanted it to feel like a conversation between friends.
I was born and raised in small-town Saskatchewan and have since lived in Calgary, London, and Berlin. Though I love to travel and will likely venture out again in the months to come, I currently call Toronto home. By day, I’m a freelance book editor. I specialize in literary fiction, memoirs, inspirational stories, and travel literature. When I take off my editor’s hat, I enjoy writing flash fiction and short stories.

What are you working on now?
I have a couple more short stories and essays in the works and hope to dive into something longer in the months to come.
Rachel’s Reading Recommendation:
I’ve recently devoured The Difference, by Canadian writer Marina Endicott, and The Overstory, by Richard Powers (a must-read in these times of environmental destruction!).
(And what good reading taste Rachel has! Marina Endicott is on my list of Authors-Readers International and Richard Powers is one of my favourite authors! I raved about The Overstory on my other blog, What Are You Reading?)

Thanks so much, Sue! It’s such an honour to be featured on this blog alongside so many of my literary heroes, and to be on “the other side” of the process!
Thanks for being such a fine editor all these years, Rach, and now a fine writer as well!
I had no idea Rachel had a book out! So exciting. Thanks for letting me know. I’m headed to Amazon right now to buy it. (Years ago, following your recommendation, I hired Rachel and she now edits ALL of my books. I recommend her without reservation to all of my writer friends.)
AHHHH!!!! I didn’t realize Rachel had this connection with you, JP!! So happy to hear you feel the same way as I do about OUR Editor!
Thank you BOTH so much for the support and the referrals (and the great books to edit)! It’s very much appreciated!
