Overview

I am an experienced professional who has worked for publishers including Bloomsbury, Palgrave Macmillan, the Oxford University Press and Berghahn Books. I began my editing and proofreading career in-house in a large academic institute (the Institute of Development Studies, UK) which produces publications on international development, and is ranked first in the world for development studies. When I left to launch my freelance business in 2008, I was kept on as one of their key editors, and they remain a regular client. I also have a background in, and passion for, music and the performing arts.

I am a personable, efficient, confident and detail-oriented editor to work with, who will strive to maintain your authorial voice, at the same time as ensuring that every point you wish to make is being clearly articulated to your readers. We will work as a team to ensure that your manuscript is the best it can be.
