After years as a bookseller in Daunt and Waterstones I began writing reports for Literary Scouting company Dialogue Scouting. I began working at independent press Penned in the Margins as a Publishing Coordinator, and am now the Assistant Editor and Sales Manager. I manage publishing projects, commission fiction and edit manuscripts. I was granted a place on the competitive Editing Training Scheme run by the Publishing Training Centre and The Literary Consultancy, where I subsequently completed courses in Editing Fiction, Copy Editing and Substantive Editing.
I have worked on a vast range of manuscripts from commercial thrillers to experimental prose. I will approach your writing project with sensitivity and insight aiming to bring out the best in style and story.
