As well as being an editor, I’m an experienced writer myself, so I understand how important your words are. One of my key principles is to respect your voice at all times. It can be nerve-wracking to work with an editor, and you deserve one that respects your vision.
So, why work with me?
- I’m an intermediate member of The Society for Editors and Proofreaders, an organisation that promotes high editorial standards. I abide by their code of practice.
- I’m qualified. My professional development thus far includes:
- Fiction Editing (SfEP)
- Copy Editing 1 (SfEP)
- Proofreading 1 (SfEP)
- I hold a BA (Hons) in English Literature and Creative Writing. Areas of focus included nineteenth century history and fantasy fiction.
- I’m experienced. I’ve worked with publishers as well as many independent authors.
When I’m not working…
I always have my nose stuck in a book, whether it’s an epic fantasy, a thriller, or a YA novel; my love of reading is one of the reasons I became an editor. I also enjoy writing and attend a regular writer’s group.
Aside from all of that, I’m a bit of a nerd and love video games and anime—if you’re looking for someone to proofread or edit your written game content, I’d love to hear from you.
