Service Description

All my writing work is undertaken by me, personally, and is 100% unique. I don't subcontract (unless specifically requested to in the capacity of website/newsletter/magazine editor) and I don't use text editing or spinning software.

As an editor, I offer traditional line editing, developmental editing or 'creative' editing—for when you know your text lacks a little something, but can't quite put your finger on it. I am also highly experienced in turning a collection of blog posts into a well-structured book, ready for publication.

Preferred editing genres include thrillers, science fiction, urban fantasy, speculative fiction, horror, humour, historical fiction, dystopian fiction, children's fiction, YA, health and fitness, autobiography and memoir, lifestyle how-tos and true-life tales. I have a penchant for stories that are just that little bit out of the ordinary, so if you don't see your genre listed above but believe you have something offbeat, try me.

Eagle-eyed readers will have noticed that I have written this profile in British English. I am equally comfortable writing and editing in American English, using the appropriate spellings, grammar and punctuation.

I positively encourage feedback and will always go the extra mile to ensure you receive the product you deserve. I'm not afraid to admit that I love my work and have never missed a deadline yet!
