A book editor with over 20 years' experience in the industry, I specialise in literary fiction and non-fiction, memoir, biography, current affairs, travel and history. Having worked with highly successful, established authors as well as rising stars and first-time authors I am passionate about helping writers attain their best work in a collaborative, creative and authentic way.
I work with writers at all stages of their projects – from initial concept to printed book. The comprehensive editing and consulting services I offer include editorial assessments, tailored advice on how to submit proposals and manuscripts to agents and publishers, direction on profile enhancement, as well as intensive line-editing, restructuring, plot development, copy-editing and proofreading.
As the author of four books, I am lucky to have experience from 'the other side', which I find invaluable in being able to connect with and support writers starting out on their own paths to becoming published authors.
I know how daunting the process of handing your book over to an editor can be and I am very mindful of the concerns you may have. I take great care to approach your work in a respectful and honest way and to ensure the whole experience is as pain-free, positive and fun as possible.
