Specific projects

My extensive teaching career as an English teacher and award-winning teacher librarian, and as a published writer, means that I am highly adept at proofreading and editing. As a freelance editor, I have edited a wide range of novels, memoirs, autobiographies and non-fiction, including for published authors. I also specialise in manuscript assessment, mentoring and development. I provide major editorial support for authors preparing manuscripts for
submission to editors, literary agents and publishers.

My special interests include reading, writing, renovating, travel and French films.

Manuscript development and outstanding client communication. Constant updates, consultation and support throughout the editing process. Highly motivated, exceptional commitment to each author and ability to meet deadlines. I am always passionate about and completely committed to any project that I undertake. I focus solely on one edit at a time; providing you the writer with an exclusive, highly personal service.

Author of: “Our House is Certainly Not in Paris”, a memoir about renovating an old farmhouse in France.
