Verified identity


With a Diploma of Arts (Professional Writing & Editing) and Bachelor of Professional Writing & Publishing under my belt, I have been a professional writer and editor for 8 years, having worked as an editor at Lonely Planet and Hinkler Books as well as writing articles for HuffPost, The Loop, Girlfriend Magazine, Expedia and more. I have a non-fiction title coming out in 2020 with Ulysses Press.

My areas of interest and expertise in fiction are horror, thriller, dystopia, young adult fiction, and in non-fiction I edit self-help, mysteries, crime and travel and some indie authors I have worked with have gone on to become best-sellers or gained book deals with publishing houses. I can edit both for British English or American English spelling and grammar depending on your target audience.
