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.

Get in touch and let's discuss your needs over a cup of tea or coffee.
