Since deciding to work freelance in the book publishing industry in August 2018, I have had the pleasure of writing and editing numerous non-fiction books on subjects including Design, Crafts, Health & Lifestyle, and Mind, Body & Spirit. I have experience in writing and editing for both commercial and academic audiences and my customers have included publishers such as Bloomsbury and Bonnier Books.

Producing 40 plus titles a year, it was essential for me to have a proactive attitude and diligent organisation and communication skills to ensure that each book conformed to the house style, was proofread and copyedited to a consistently high standard and published on schedule and within budget whilst still creating a beautiful product.
