I am a thoughtful copy editor and meticulous proofreader of both fiction and non-fiction. My editing services include proofreading and line editing for grammar, punctuation, spelling and the nitty gritty, as well as copy editing for sentence structure, word usage, fact-checking, timeline and character consistency, flow, tone, etc.

I have wide-ranging experience editing fiction of all genres, but I have a soft spot for contemporary fiction and women's fiction. I'm also experienced in editing non-fiction and consider myself a generalist; I am open to any narrative subject though much of my experience is in memoirs, business books and illustrated lifestyle books.

As an editor at a London-based independent publisher and a freelance editor for the University of London, I have proven myself trustworthy and professional. I have worked with both publishers and self-published authors, and I love helping authors navigate the editorial stages of the publishing process.
