For three decades, Frances Peck was a successful behind-the-scenes wordsmith, working on other people’s publications as an editor, ghostwriter, and rewriter. She also taught over 10,000 people how to get better at editing and writing. Then she decided it was time to return to her youthful passion—writing fiction. At our November meeting, Frances will discuss her journey from hidden editor to published author, fielding questions on writing, editing, and publishing.

Frances Peck, CPE (Hon.), is the author of Peck’s English Pointers, an online collection of essays on language; a co-author of the HyperGrammar website; and a long-time member of Editors Canada. Her propulsive debut novel, The Broken Places, hailed by the Vancouver Sun as an “intense and absorbing drama,” explores how a major earthquake shakes up the lives and relationships of a group of Vancouverites.
