I enjoy working closely with authors to bring out the best in their books, whether that means offering advice on how to structure a book or proofreading to pick up any mistakes that have crept in. My favourite thing about my job is how much I learn from each book I edit, from discovering a forgotten female voice in history to learning the collective noun for a group of walruses (an 'ugly').
