I have worked as a freelance editor since 2002.
My clients include trade publishers as well as not-for-profit organisations and individuals. Past clients include Random House, Allen & Unwin, Murdoch Books, Hardie Grant Books, Macmillan and the State Library of Victoria.
I work across many genres but food, craft and fiction are my specialties.
structural editing & development
I love to work with clients to help develop their manuscripts. I work with both fiction and non-fiction manuscripts. A structural edit (sometimes called a manuscript assessment) is an industry standard recommended starting point to develop your work.
editing & proofreading
I have 20 years experience in structural and copyediting across multiple genres, including fiction, non-fiction, illustrated titles and children’s books.
commissioning & briefing
I am experienced with commissioning and briefing writers, illustrators and photographers, including writing detailed briefs where required.
I am available to manage projects and staff (including sourcing if appropriate) for the right project.
I have extensive experience in editing for the Australian market as well as the American and UK markets. I am available to write style guides for your company/book/project.
