Lucy Kenward is a freelance editor, an editorial associate with Greystone Books and a partner with West Coast Editorial Associates. She worked in-house with Douglas & McIntyre Publishing for more than a decade, where she edited an award-winning collection of cookbooks as well as art catalogues, architectural monographs, outdoor guides and illustrated histories. In 2010 she received the Tom Fairley Award for Editorial Excellence from Editors Canada.
Today, she continues to edit non-fiction books, particularly in the areas of health, nature and environment, food and wine, and business.

When away from her desk, Lucy spends her time bicycle touring, cross-country skiing, backpacking, and poring over maps planning her next backcountry adventure.
