Overview

I am a literary consultant and fiction editor with a strong interest in fantasy and sci-fi. I have worked as a freelancer for three years, and my current main clients are Harper Collins and Daniel Goldsmith Associates. I grew up in the USA but have lived in the UK for 20 years, so I can also provide localisation editing for UK-to-US English (and vice versa).

I am also the Prize Manager for the 2019 First Novel Prize, which is run by Daniel Goldsmith Associates, and I host a podcast about George R. R. Martin’s Wild Cards series.
