Overview

As an author myself, I know how daunting it can be to hand your book over to an editor! I offer gentle, encouraging and honest feedback to help make your book the best it can be.

A member of the International Association of Professional Writers and Editors, I work regularly with first-time authors, along with experienced professionals and publishing houses. A lover of history, I specialise in historical fiction, as well as romance, memoir and self-help.

I offer feedback at all stages of the publishing journey, from detailed developmental edits and manuscript assessments to copy editing and proofreading. I am always careful to retain and develop the author's unique voice. With personal experience in both the traditional and independent publishing worlds, I can also offer advice and support on whichever publishing route you choose.

Don't hesitate to get in touch with any questions, or to request a free sample edit.

No matter what stage you're at in your writing career, I would love to help you get your book out into the world.
