Amanda J Harman – Editor

Heart-centred editor working with independent writers/educators on psychology, life sciences and natural history. Over 30 years' experience.


I have been a freelance copy-editor, proofreader, development editor and project manager, mainly working on life science books and primary and secondary school science projects, for the last 30 years. In addition, I now love to work with independent writers and people running heart-led businesses and social enterprises.

Do you have a course, a book, a blog or a website you need editing or proofreading? Or do you need help getting them written in the first place? I have a particular passion for working with other neurodivergent people, as I am autistic and ADHD. Life is never dull!
