Hello! I’m Daphne

I’m an experienced writer, editor and writing coach.

I have a journalism background, a business sensibility and a passion for social justice.

I’m based in Toronto, but I work with clients all over the world.

“Daphne produced a brilliant story that humanized the numbers and analysis. She was a pro to work with.”

— Margaret Webb, Consulting editor, Liisbeth


In addition to my work as a journalist, I’m also a fiction writer and self-published author. My novella Walking With Walser came out in 2015 and is now available in paperback and ebook formats at major online bookstores such as Chapters and Amazon. You can also order it from independent bookstores in your neighbourhood.

Told in the eccentric voice of a middle-aged writer who idolizes the German modernist Robert Walser, the story follows Ursula on a day-long walk in her beloved downtown neighbourhood, Queen St. West in Toronto.


Walking With Walser is “a talisman, a palimpsest, a strange and beautiful gift.”

Sarah Selecky, author of Radiant Shimmering Light
