Do you worry that your plot isn’t pacy enough, your characters lack credibility or your ending fails to deliver? Are you having trouble turning your travel diaries into a compelling story?

Welcome!

Whether you’re writing a novel or a travel book, I will use my editorial expertise to help you analyse what’s working well, what’s in need of attention and how to tackle the problem areas.

I am a professional book editor and copy-editor with 25 years’ experience. I edit fiction and travel titles for self-publishers, debut novelists, established authors and publishing houses. My specialist areas are literary, commercial and genre fiction, thrillers, women’s fiction, historical fiction, fiction in translation, travelogues and narrative non-fiction. Here’s what some of my clients have said about me.

I’m an Advanced Professional Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP), a Partner Member of the Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi) and a member of the Society of Authors (SoA). As an author myself, I know how important it is to have an experienced and sympathetic editor on your side.

Please contact me to find out how I can help you produce the best possible book, whether you are submitting to an agent or planning to self-publish.
