I am a freelance copy editor, proofreader and publisher specialising in supporting independent authors.
If you are an author (or an aspiring author) and are looking for an editor and/or publisher for your next project, then why not drop me a message to discuss how I can help you reach that goal?
Whether you are writing a book, or just need a document proofreading, I can help. Perhaps you write a blog, and would like a second set of eyes before you publish your work online? Maybe you are applying for work, and would like me to check your CV before sending it out to prospective employers?
I also offer an affordable self-publishing service. Big publishers are great, but costly. I am hoping to make publishing more affordable and achievable for writers, whether it’s your first piece of work or you are already an established author.
I look forward to working with you!
Based in Hampshire in the UK, I love to travel and spend time with my family. We are a military family, so time together is precious when we get it.
My professional experience is historically in the public sector, in roles requiring a high level of accuracy and attention to detail. This has armed me with an essential set of skills to aid me in my career in editing.
With regards to my more recent experience, I have contributed to several books in an editorial capacity since 2012 and helped authors to publish since 2019.
After making the change to concentrate on this work full time I have helped several authors to publish their work. I also create print books for clients wishing to hand their memories or diaries down to their children or grandchildren. Most of my experience with these are military or war diaries. I offer discounts for these particular books for serving members of the armed forces and veterans.
