I offer affordable copy editing and proofreading services for indie authors in the following genres:

  • Non-fiction (historical, alternative health, animal welfare, animal rights, photography, the arts, self-help, environmental issues)
  • Memoirs (esp mental health, animal rescue)
  • Blog posts/articles


I am an author and since 2011 have self-published 5 novels, a memoir, short stories, and collection of poetry/lyrics.

I have a BA (Hons) Degree in Humanities with Literature from the Open University and a Diploma in Professional Proofreading & Editing

As a native English speaker (British), I have extensive experience proofreading, editing and writing the following:
  • Fiction and non-fiction books
  • Websites and online content
  • Articles
  • Short stories
  • Blogs

Why Hire Me?

Ever since I can remember I have had a real passion for words and as an avid reader, I just love to read. As a self-published author myself, I understand the dedication and hard work that goes into writing that book and getting it out there. 

As well as having an excellent eye for detail, I can work well on my own, am reliable, honest, efficient, and can manage my own time and workload to meet deadlines.

I can work with both British English and American English.
