As an English Literature and Philosophy graduate from the University of Birmingham, books are my passion. I believe that books are unique in their ability to change the world, even long after their author has gone. As a freelance book editor, I help authors deliver books that will change the reader's life.
With over 10 years of industry experience, I’ve worked both as a freelancer and in-house at a niche publisher. At the UK's leading global ICT & Tech publisher, Packt Publishing, I proofread over 400 books and copyedited over 50. As a freelancer, I've edited over 60 nonfiction books and worked with authors from first-timers to New York Times bestsellers. You can see a selection of these books below.
Aside from my book knowledge and industry experience, 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. 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 industry experience means that 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 that your book is the best it can possibly be—clear, well-structured, compelling, and informative. If required, I can also help with your table of contents, glossary, author bio, book proposal, and blurb.
Whether you're a first-time author, a non-native speaker, a bestseller, or anything else, please get in touch—and let's bring your book to life! I'm available to start new projects in April 2019.
