Whatever you're writing, you want your words to shine and to be the best they can. This is where an independent eye can often help, by spotting the problems that you're too close to see. I can work with your words and within your voice to achieve the most suitable result for your chosen audience. Whether you require a straightforward proofread, more substantial editing or a structural rewrite, I can work with you to achieve the result you desire.
I offer editing and proofreading of novels, non-fiction books, dissertations, papers and articles for both experienced and novice authors. As a published author myself I understand the pressures of the writing process, and much of my work is with authors whose first language is not English, particularly as I speak good French. I have a PhD in History and a background in management, so am happy working on both academic and professional publications as well as fiction.
