I am a professional copy editor and proofreader, with a specialty of working with clients on their memoirs or large fiction projects. My clients come from a range of countries, often where English is their second language. These clients also include technological start-ups, solar energy producers, as well as major international companies. I have extensive experience working with non-fiction and academic books for some of the big publishers, art publishers, charities and thinktanks. My academic background is in anthropology and international relations.
I completed an MA in Creative Writing in 2017, so fiction is my passion. I really enjoy working with authors at whatever stage their work may be. I can give feedback on plot outlines, pitching and submission, or complete manuscripts, as needed.
Please do get in contact here if you have a manuscript or editing project that I could help with.
For international clients, I am now working as a specialist editor with the Reedsy platform. They facilitate collaborations between authors, editors, translators, and others involved in the creative industries. Please click here to connect.

FACILITATION OF YOUR VOICE
Have you always wanted to write your memoirs, finish that novel, initiate that blog, or better express yourself in writing? In addition to running creative writing workshops, I am trained in facilitation. I can help you find your voice for writing, blogging, professional communications, and more. I have experience working with professionals from major British, American and European companies so that they could find the best way to express themselves with purpose and confidence.
Please do get in contact with your ideas; I would love to help!
