My areas of expertise encompass crime thriller, suspense, historical and women's fiction. Having worked at Pan Macmillan and HarperCollins, editing Sunday Times bestselling authors, I now offer a range of expert publishing services.
During my time at Pan Macmillan, I worked on bestsellers, including Danielle Steel, Lucy Diamond, Karen Swan, Annie Murray and Andrew Gross. At HarperCollins, was privileged to work with Cecelia Ahern, Lauren Weisberger and Philippa Gregory. Having established excellent publisher relationships throughout my career, I continue to work with HarperCollins, Pan Macmillan, Bonnier, alongside digital pioneers Bookouture and Aria.
No author is the same. No book is the same. That’s why I offer a bespoke service to every project. Be it a complete structural edit, or how to prepare for agent submission or publication. Perhaps you have an agent, and you need assistance line editing to make sure that your book stands out when it reaches the commissioning editor’s desk.
As a commissioning editor, I understand the need for eye-catching titles and how they will position your book in the market. If you need a title or copy advice, these are services I can offer.
Finally, I work for digital book club The Pigeonhole, which runs serialisations for bestselling and debut fiction – I've worked on campaigns for Jodi Picoult, Kate Morton, Sophie Kinsella, Ruth Ware and Shari Lapena. Each day I am immersed in the publishing world, tapping into publishing trends, and can apply all of this knowledge to your novel.
Look forward to working with you soon!
Having worked at Pan Macmillan, HarperCollins and Constable and Robinson, I provide editorial advice based on a sound understanding of the publishing landscape. Whether you are preparing for agent submission, or under contract, I can help polish your manuscript for publication.
Senior Commissioning Editor, working on brand authors including Danielle Steel, Lucy Diamond and Karen Swan.
