Verified identity


An editor since 2005, I love engaging with the projects I work on, helping the writer produce a polished piece of art without changing or modifying their voice. I am a curious and proactive editor, passionate about any publishing project, no matter how big or small. I also specialise in ELT - developing, editing, processing and writing.

Working with you will entail zoom/skype chats on each stage of the manuscript, umpteen amounts of support and creative ideas to help you produce the work you envision.
