I am a proofreader with six years of editing experience across a range of fiction and non-fiction titles. I have completed widely recognised industry qualifications in proofreading and an MSc in Creative Writing (focusing on literary and fantasy fiction).
My work history includes freelancing as a proofreader for Hachette UK (Headline and Hodder Studio), Bloomsbury and Joffe Books. I specialise in crime/mystery, literary and historical fiction, and will be happy to work on fantasy, romance and women’s fiction, too.
My practice revolves around collaborative and open engagement with authors. Your work will be in safe hands with me! I understand how nerve-wracking it can be to place your manuscript in someone else’s hands; my master's degree gave me first-hand experience of what this is like. You can relax knowing I will be sensitive and encouraging in my approach.
