Hi, I’m Amanda Lewis, a book editor based in Vancouver, Canada.
I edit fiction and non-fiction in numerous categories, but specialize in memoir/biography, business, tech, activism, and “big ideas.”
Books I’ve worked on have become #1 national and international bestsellers, and won the Scotiabank Giller Prize, RBC Taylor Prize, Governor General’s Literary Award, BC National Award for Canadian Non-Fiction, Hilary Weston/Rogers Writers’ Trust Prize for Literary Non-Fiction, Banff Mountain Book Award for Adventure Travel, and Kobo Emerging Writer Prize. Learn more about me and the books I’ve worked on.
Formerly an editor at Penguin Random House Canada in Toronto, I am currently Editorial Director at Page Two. I’m also co-founder and Literary Director of The Reading Line, a unique literary festival on two wheels.
I’m writing my first book, Tracking Giants: A Tree Pilgrimage, a memoir/travelogue of searching for the 43 Champion trees in British Columbia, catalogued as the largest of their species. Greystone Books will release Tracking Giants in fall 2021. In the meantime, please follow @TrackingGiants on Instagram for photos of trees large and small.
