I'm an editor and proofreader based in the UK. I have an MA in Publishing and over 8 years' experience in the industry. I currently work for a major academic publisher and have undertaken freelance work with independent authors.
I completed an MA in Publishing in 2007 and have worked in the industry ever since. I also undertook additional training with the Publishing Training Centre before embarking on freelance work. Since then, I've been fortunate to have worked with authors of both fiction and non-fiction across a range of areas, though the majority of my experience with fiction has been with genre novels and short stories.
I love what I do, and I love being able to play a part in helping authors get their words out into the world.
I work on a number of academic journals, commissioning and editing articles in collaboration with expert academic editors. I also write and edit online content.
