I am a freelance professional editor, copy-editor and proofreader with nearly twenty years’ experience in bringing books to market. I have worked extensively with publishers in Ireland and in the UK, including Mercier Press, The O’Brien Press, Pearson Education, Merlin Books and Y Books.
I now spend most of my time working with authors who are planning to either self-publish or to submit their manuscripts to agents or publishers – all those years spent working on the inside have given me a pretty good idea of what the dreaded gatekeepers are looking for!
I’d love to help you bring out the best in your manuscript, whether it’s through improving structure with a development edit, getting everything clear and correct with a copy-edit, or just a plain old proofread.
I also work with businesses to improve their corporate communications, and with students and researchers who want to add polish to their thesis or journal submission.
If you think I can help with your project, drop me a line and let’s talk!
