As a designer and coordinator working in publishing, I’ve worked with many editors over the years and rank Lesley Cameron up there amongst the very best. She consistently turns in outstanding high quality professional work, often under lots of pressure to meet tight deadlines. When teamed up to work with her, or connecting her to work with others on a project, it is always a comfort knowing she’s on the team. She gets the job done and it is always a delightful experience working with her.

Lesley Cameron has provided outstanding support for the publication of my books and articles. Her exquisitely careful reading produced precise suggestions and elegant solutions. Lesley is especially attuned to the needs of writers whose native language is other than English. Her gentle but precise questioning of assumptions helps to reveal what different cultural environments take for granted. She is a superb editor who goes well beyond the call of professional obligations to produce high-quality publications.

Lesley provides clear guidelines about her editing services and has an impeccable level of professionalism and expertise. We have used her for two major editing projects and certainly plan to utilize her services in future projects. I would highly recommend her editing services.
Karen Davison, Owner, Viva Health Education and Research
Lesley has worked with Whitecap Books since 2001. We are a busy trade publisher, and Lesley is an invaluable asset to us. She knows what needs to be done, she takes control of a project, and needs no supervision. She handles large and challenging projects with tact and diligence, and authors are always singing her praises. Moreover, she always delivers her projects in on time. Lesley is a joy to work with, and I can’t recommend her editing, proofreading, and indexing services highly enough.
Taryn Boyd, Managing Editor, Whitecap Books
Lesley is conscientious and thorough as an editor, warm and friendly as a human. It’s the combination of the two that makes her a dream to work with.

Lesley Cameron is one of those rare individuals who brings multiple gifts to her work. I have found her to be an outstanding editorial proofer in both English and French, as well as a fine French translator. She also possesses an exceptional eye for detail, noting even the smallest inconsistencies in design. Suffice it to say that over the years Lesley has become a deeply appreciated and indispensible member of our Wellness Matters editorial team.

Lesley is the consummate professional - detail-oriented, on-time, and proactive in solving problems. She is delightful to work with, and does excellent work, time and time again.
Samantha Reynolds, President, Echo Memoirs
I am very happy to be able to work with Lesley both as an editor for my literary publishing company and as a proofreader for many of the non-profit associations I work with. She is a careful and talented editor, and she works well with our authors and all the members of our creative teams. Her ability to edit and proofread in both French and English makes her an extremely valuable resource, and I definitely recommend her.
