I'm a book editor and proofreader, and have been freelancing since 2004.

I specialise in fiction editing - developmental/structural editing, line editing and copy-editing. I also rewrite (if that's what is needed) and would welcome enquiries to ghost-write fiction.

I'm a recovering graphic designer (my first career, from 1981 to 1993) and now use those skills to offer text layout/formatting, typesetting and ebook conversion for self-publishers and publishers. I also offer a hand-holding service for self-publishers nervous about publishing online.

Clients include independent/self-publishing authors, small presses and publishers.

I have a primary degree, master's and a PhD in English Literature (Queen's University Belfast, UK).
