I am a freelance copy/line editor, proofreader and developmental editor specialising in non-fiction. I am meticulous, reliable, and passionate about helping every book I work on reach its full potential. As a published author with an MA in creative writing, I understand the unique intimacy of being edited, and I love working with people to ensure that every sentence is polished and every idea is clear.
My particular areas of interest and expertise include travel, nature, sport, memoir, music and history. I also have a PhD in cultural geography from Royal Holloway, University of London, where my research centred on the relationship between body and place at the indoor swimming pool.
Please do get in touch if you have any questions or would like to discuss your project!
