With nearly 20 years experience in publishing, mainly editorial, but also marketing and book selling. My specialism is children's non-fiction and fiction, primary literacy, secondary English, and international curricula and assessment. Commercially minded with proven skills in commissioning and author recruitment - negotiating contracts, manuscript development and high levels of author care.

I've worked successfully with established, well-known authors as well as discovered and developed new talent.

I have worked in-house as development editor and commissioning editor and as children's publisher. My freelance services include publishing proposal writing, manuscript review and development, detailed copy editing as well as content writing.
