I am a British/Canadian book editor and writer, with over 20 years' experience in both non-fiction and fiction. I pride myself on being diligent, communicative and fast-working in what I do.
Writing – all manner of non-fiction for both print and digital; children’s fiction; web content creation
Copyediting & Proofreading – from short articles to massive novels
Format Consultation – Have an idea for a non-fiction book but don’t know where to start? I can provide initial research and a detailed content and design proposal.
Prior to going freelance from home 8 years ago, I worked in-house for a number of large international publishers such as DorIing Kindersley and Reader's Digest. My roles have ranged from editor/proofreader to writer and managing editor.
Previously my speciality has been children's character titles, having written and edited numerous publications under licence from Disney and Warner Bros, among others. I have developed and written several children's activity books and rhyming fiction.
Since joining PPH I have taken on more research-based educational writing, particularly treatments for several wildlife documentaries, rewriting of short and long-form manuscripts, and content creation for e-commerce websites.
My copyediting and proofreading commissions range from novels of 150k words + to short stories.
I particularly enjoy working on topics related to natural history, travel and culture.
I am highly organised and thorough in my work, and will always deliver on time. I don't believe in article-spinning of any kind. My content is 100% original, based on thorough research, and as such my fees reflect this. Regardless of agreed costs, I will make all reasonable amendments until you are completely satisfied. I am happy to communicate as necessary via FaceTime or Skype, as well as email and telephone, to ensure you are happy with my service at all times.
