I have knowledge, competency and experience in a number of genres including chick lit, sci-fi, fantasy, romance and crime, as well as contemporary Australian fiction. Scroll down for some testimonials.
Experienced with narrative non-fiction, websites, blog copy, cookbooks, brochure copy and training materials.
I am primarily a line/copy editor working to improve your writing without altering ‘voice’. Being a good ‘fit’ with the writer is key.
It might seem contradictory to be highly creative and have an annoyingly pedantic attention to detail - but these are the essential skills an editor requires. I don’t just fix your written copy, I make it shine. Clients include authors (fiction and non-fiction), recipe writers, bloggers and website owners. I have over 15 years experience working both in-house, and as a freelancer. Now semi-retired, I only take on one book project at a time, but always have availability for small jobs.
