Morgan Springett – Editor

Editor specialising in crime, thriller, espionage, adventure, and historical fiction.


I am an editor specialising in crime, thriller, espionage, adventure, and historical fiction.

I absolutely love working with authors to hone their manuscript to something that they are proud of. I want to frame their voice and tell a brilliant story, while preserving the feeling that got them writing in the first place. Coming from a commercial background I want my authors to not only to get the best out of their writing, but also to give them the best chance of success out there. So let's find that core pitch, amplify the tension, ramp up the plot and get readers turning those pages!

I have had the pleasure to work with authors such as Ian Ross, Stephen Ronson, Julian Stockwin, Gerald Seymour, HB Lyle, and Simon Conway, helping them shape their manuscripts and guiding them through the publishing process. I've also worked on some of the biggest brands in publishing, including Stephen King, Jodi Picoult, Jasper Fforde and Michael Caine.

I can help you improve your pitch, work up your novel with a structural edit, or get straight into the thick of it with a line edit. As always, I'm very happy to chat all this through.
