My love of reading from an early age led me to study English at Cambridge University, and afterwards took me to a publishing house in Germany where I began my editorial training in earnest. Back in the UK, I worked both for publishers and book production companies - widening my knowledge to include the practicalities of book production.
Since 2007, I have worked with hundreds of writers from the UK and beyond (including Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece and the U.S.) as a literary consultant. In addition to being trained to spot and remedy the weaknesses in a manuscript, I know both the common gripes and concerns of publishers, agents and the book-buying public, as well as the common worries and stumbling blocks for writers.
In my consultancy and editorial services, I aim to bring out the very best in the writers I work with.
I am a Partner Member of the Alliance of Independent Authors and a member of the Society of Authors.
