As an experienced editor, with a significant portfolio of projects, I can offer insight and guidance to help take your writing project to the next level.

My in-house work has been with a big five publisher and three London-based independents. Many of the writers that I have worked with have a huge readership and are prize-winning and bestselling authors.
