Hello and thanks for visiting my page.

I am a freelance editor, author and chairperson of literary events. I am a member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP), the Society of Authors and the Crime Writers Association (CWA).

I have proofread and edited many books ranging from crime fiction to comedy (see website for further details) for publishers such as Bloodhound Books and for debut authors.

I am the bestselling author of A Murder Of Crows and I also write science fiction, literary fiction and horror so I have a good all round knowledge of what an author or publisher requires when they send me a manuscript. My training with the CIEP also means that I can edit non-fiction too.

I always respond to enquiries promptly and work to an agreed budget. I have never missed a deadline and usually complete proofreads/edits ahead of schedule.

Services include:

  • Hardcopy, Word and PDF proofreading/editing
  • Structural editing
  • Critiques for fiction
  • Helping to develop house styles for companies
  • Using BSI symbols
  • Online research

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with any questions you may have.

Thank you.
