Deanna Dority

Although Deanna is not herself skilled at woodworking, she is skilled at working with words. And thanks to her husband’s own skills as a DIYer, this freelance writer-editor has been contributing articles to Canadian Home Workshop for a number of years, covering their home reno projects ranging from tankless water heaters to heated floors, as well as design stories on backyards and decks.

She has also written articles for Homemakers and Canadian Gardening magazines, among others. When time permits, in the nicer weather Deanna can be found out on the golf course, which is more than she can say for many of her golf balls.
