Greg Ioannou

Greg Ioannou

Toronto, Ontario

Greg’s been writing and editing since 1977. He’s edited more than 3000 books, and written everything from board games to annual reports. When he’s not busy running Colborne Communications (a writing and editing company), Iguana Books (a hybrid publisher), and PubLaunch (which provides services to self-publishing authors), he likes to walk around the office in bare feet, sipping coffee and admiring his collection of stuffed mooses. He was the very first member of the Editors’ Association of Canada and has been on EAC’s executive for longer than some of the other Colborners have been alive. He’s loquacious [“full of loquats”], pugnacious [“resembling a pug”], and ornery [“Greg-like”].
