I trained as a journalist and currently work as a freelance editor and writer, with articles published both online and in a variety of print publications. I have edited books in a variety of genres including dystopian, memoir, erotica, YA, fantasy, short stories, poetry and business and have worked on over sixty projects. I also copy write and edit for my husband’s communications consultancy. I have worked on a freelance basis for US clients and am happy to edit in either UK or US English. I have previously worked on a freelance basis for several academic writing companies, writing model essays, proofreading essays and dissertations and editing and improving academic work at all levels from foundation to Ph.D. standard. I have taught creative writing with a focus on grammar, punctuation, creativity, voice and expression. Find out more about my editing services here.
I have a first degree in English Language and Literature and a Master’s degree in Creative Writing. I am fascinated by history – but not so much the kings and queens, the emperors, the military heroes or the great leaders. More the ordinary people whose lives were touched by the decisions, the beliefs and the whims of those who had power over them and who now fill our history books. It is their stories that I want to tell. As part of my Master’s degree I wrote my first historical novel ‘The Black Hours’ based on the notorious Witchfinder General, Matthew Hopkins. I have also written a novella ‘Blackwater’. I am currently working on my next full length novel. You can find out more about my books here.
