Overview

I'm a freelance editor, copy editor and proofreader. I'm an avid reader of adult and teen fiction, particularly literary fiction and historical fiction. I also have an interest in non-fiction books and feel comfortable dealing with these too. I've recently completed an MA in publishing studies and my dissertation on how a bestselling novel is created received a distinction.
