Here on Reedsy, I've edited and proofread memoirs and guides, and written copy. I'd love to hear what I can do for you.
My career so far has focused most strongly on travel, culture, food and outdoor activities. For Lonely Planet I've produced guides to Iceland, Ireland, the UK, Japan and more, collaborating on briefs, guiding structure, ensuring consistency and helping polish writing. My work at senior level as a Managing Editor has helped develop a strong grasp of strategy. While at Rough Guides, I edited titles including France, India and New Zealand alongside more general guides like Camping and Make the Most of Your Time on Earth.
I'm a very experienced writer, and my extensive history of book reviewing (for the Guardian, the Sunday Herald and the List) has given me further insights as well as honing my prose. I specialize in graphic novels and new fiction, and spent many years writing about pop music and club culture. I'm also a digital editor, skilled in Wordpress.
Working with writers has always been a strength - whether you want a careful, unintrusive edit, high-level guidance, tips on gaps in the market or help crafting that perfect sentence, I'm here to help.
