I am a professional Commissioning Editor specialising in fiction and personal memoir. I love working with authors at the start of their career. I will take your manuscript from rough draft to polished manuscript whilst offering support and guidance on how to navigate the publishing industry. I am particularly skilled at helping writers hone their pitch to ensure that literary agents and publishers sit up and take notice.
With 8 years experience in trade publishing, I have edited and published numerous Sunday Times and NYT bestsellers and worked with authors such as Sophie Cousens, Susan Lewis, Kathy Reichs, Pet Shop Boys, Kiersten Modglin and many more!
I am available for copyediting and proofreading, but the most valuable service I offer is in shaping your manuscript to ensure that it reaches its most compelling and commercial potential.
I began my career at a literary agency, and I also work as a Development Producer for podcasts. If you have a great idea for a non-fiction narrative series, or are struggling to decide whether your idea would work better as a podcast or a book, I'm very happy to help.
