Christine Fears - Editor

Cambridge/London, UK


I'm a freelance editor with over five years of experience both in house and as a freelancer. I have edited several works of fiction and non-fiction. While I work on a freelance basis for publishers and literary agents, I get a great deal of joy from working with independent authors.

I specialise in literary fiction, romance/erotica, fantasy and surrealism. Send me your manuscripts!
