I'm an experienced freelance editor, who has had previous in-house experience at Scholastic Children's Books and Channel Four Learning, but who has been self-employed for over 20 years.
The main editorial services I provide are:
– copy-editing, to improve readability, fitness of purpose, grammar and punctuation, and to pick up on any glaring plot issues
– proofreading, a last-stage check on designed text for typos, repetition and any final problems
I love the challenge of making writing as good as it can be; I derive special enjoyment from historical fiction (where I get to utilise my History degree) and YA/crossover fiction.
I provide copy-editing and proofreading services to publishing houses as well as directly to self-publishing authors.
