Overview

I’m a writer and editor. I’m also a book-collector, book-nerd, grammar-nerd and coffee-lover. I have been working with indie writers/authors since 2016 and I have a background in Accounting and 10+ years in Education. I love the English language and enjoy learning the etymology of words. I wish to use my knowledge, and my passion for English to help indie writers understand how to use words appropriately in fiction writing so that they will be able to create stories that are not only entertaining, but also well-edited.


Over the years, I have also done freelance media through a local, independent consulting firm, Image Architect. My media writings have been published and quoted in online magazines, government websites and local newspapers.

I specialize in copy-editing & proofreading. I have worked with a number of indie authors in the following genres: Contemporary Romance, Historical Romance, Dystopian, YA, NA, Non-fiction, Poetry & West Indian Fiction.

Don't hesitate to contact me. We’ll chat, have coffee(or tea… for some of you strange-non-coffee-drinking writers), and work on your manuscript together.

I welcome and look forward to working with you as you embark on the adventure of penning your story to life!
