I have been editing and writing for the past ten years and have had short stories published, both in magazines and on radio. I have also written stories for children and young adults and am now working on an historical novel, which is largely based on a true story.
My editing experience ranges from children's stories and short stories to novels and autobiographies. Having not long since emerged from academia I am quite capable of editing non-fiction as well as fiction. I am currently teaching creative writing.
I live in Australia and have experience with both UK/Australian based spelling and American. I do not pass any projects on to anyone else and will never give up on a project once started.
As I am a writer as well as an editor I am able to rewrite for clarity or aesthetic reasons. I have a very good eye for detail and am readily accessible via email, being at my desk for a good part of each day. I will give your project my undivided attention and treat your writing with the respect it deserves. If you require me to check only for spelling, punctuation and grammar I am happy to do that. If you would like a full structural edit I can help you to improve your storyline as well as your sentence construction and the aforementioned.
