I’d love to work with authors who want to make their dream become a reality or help them continue to publish the books they are most passionate about writing.

I have a Masters in Publishing and a BA in English and Creative Writing. I also have 5 years experience in copy-editing and proofreading magazines that have been internationally distributed and have become top sellers.

I have a keen interest in working with authors looking to publish hobby books or children’s books, whether that’s picture books, middle grade or young adult fiction.

I look forward to seeing what you’re working on and together we can collaborate to make your manuscript sparkle.
