As an English Literature and Philosophy graduate from the University of Birmingham (UK), books are my passion. Books are unique in their ability to change the world, even long after their author has gone. As a freelance book editor, I utilise my skills and knowledge to help authors deliver books that are worth reading.
With over 10 years of experience, I’ve worked as a freelancer and in-house for the UK's leading global ICT publisher (Packt Publishing). I've proofread over 400 books on a range of ICT & tech subjects—often written by non-native speakers—and copyedited over 20 manager’s guides on business topics for Impackt Publishing.
As a freelancer, I've edited 50+ books in the genres of self-improvement/self-help, business development, leadership/management, entrepreneurship, philosophy, and more. I’ve worked with authors from first-timers to New York Times bestsellers. You can see a selection of the books I’ve edited below.
With so many editors out there, the question is always, why choose me? Aside from my substantial knowledge of the English language and my experience in the publishing industry, I’m a conscientious individual who believes that we should all strive to make the world a better place for others, whether that's through writing a book or in other ways. I travelled the world for a year, exploring different cultures and working from far and wide, and my experience and philosophical training translates to deep, critical thinking. So if you choose me as your editor, you’ll get a constructive, honest, and challenging critique of your book that will make it better.
What I do...
My substantial industry experience means I know what readers want and how to deliver it. I'll provide honest feedback on the quality of your book, plus comprehensive guidance on how to improve it. Together, we'll ensure your book is the best it can possibly be—clear, well-structured, compelling, and informative. If required, I can also help with your contents page, glossary, author bio, and blurb. So, whether you're a non-native speaker, a first-time author, are self-publishing, or something else, please get in touch—and let's bring your book to life!
AVAILABLE TO TAKE ON NEW PROJECTS IN SEPTEMBER.
I worked in-house for the UK's leading ICT publisher Packt Publishing, where I proofread over 400 and copyedited over 50 books on a wide range of ICT and Tech subjects, from software to hardware, web development to data science, and various niche subjects. Many of these books were written by non-native English writers. I also copyedited and proofread over 20 books for Packt's sister company Impackt Publishing—on niche business topics, including manager's guides. I ensured the adherence of all books to the house style guide, and was responsible for updating the house style guide and all editorial guidelines.
As a self-employed freelance book editor and freelancer, I offer developmental editing, copyediting, and proofreading services for authors. My main genres are business development, self-improvement, and leadership. I have edited over 50 nonfiction books, from topics ranging from philosophy to property development, wellbeing to fashion. I've also edited two books on medicine for education publisher BPP Media. I've helped many authors to bring their books to life—from first-time authors to New York Times bestsellers.
