Editing Experience

I have fifteen years’ experience editing fiction and non-fiction titles and five years’ experience mentoring writers. Publisher clients include Harper Collins, Bookouture, Sandstone Press, Black & White, KillerReads, Edinburgh University Press, and HarperVoyager; writer clients include bestselling fantasy author James Calbraith, award winning author and playwright, Nell Dunn, and award winning Australian crime writer, Emma Viskic.

Editing work is treated as confidential unless otherwise agreed.

To give you an idea of whether my editing experience suits your manuscript, I have listed some editing projects completed recently. Those marked * are published while those marked **are on submission to agents and publishers or the writer is carrying out revisions and further drafts.

I am happy to provide samples of editing work and client references on request. Please note, editing is not for everyone. It is a rigorous, thorough, microscopic examination of each and every word, idea, concept, plot, character, narrative drive… the key aim of editing is to strengthen the writing prior to publication or submission.
