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.
More details of my previous work can be found in my portfolio below. Do get in touch if you'd like to discuss your project!
