Overview

I provide copyediting and proofreading services, and I am working towards professional accreditation.
I am familiar with both UK and US English, and I can work to tight deadlines using a house style if necessary.
I can work with fiction or nonfiction projects, in a variety of genres and topics.

Being an independent author myself, I know how important it is to retain the author's voice while editing, and I am sympathetic to your work. Any comments I make are suggestions only; you retain overall control over your manuscript and how you want it presented. My job is to act as a particularly pedantic reader - picking up on the typos and grammar errors, yes, but also asking the awkward questions you DON'T want your 'real' readers to be asking. Better to find out before publication, and from someone who can tell you in a professional and objective manner.

I am fortunate that as a writer myself, I am often recommended by fellow writers that I have met in person at conferences, retreats and networking events. However, it wasn't until 2016 that I chose to put my casual editing and proofreading to the test, get myself accredited, and start a business.After just two years, I was able to quit my day job and do the freelancing full-time, along with spending more time writing my own novels.
