For the last 20 years, I have worked with numerous publishers in Australia and the US, including Penguin Random House, HarperCollins, McGraw-Hill, Thomson Reuters, University of New South Wales Press and Wisdom Publications, along with several self-publishing authors. I hold a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Sydney and a Diploma of Book Editing & Publishing (with Distinction). I am also a published nonfiction author and poet, a Professional Member of the Institute of Professional Editors (Australia) and an Accredited Indexer with the Australian and New Zealand Society of indexers.
My specialty is nonfiction, with a particular emphasis on self-help, biography and history. I am a detail-oriented editor, passionate about readability, grammar and punctuation, so come to me for that final polish before approaching a publisher. If you choose the route of self-publishing, I can also provide you with world-class proofreading and indexing services, and plenty of advice!
