    I am a creative non-fiction writer, editor and traveler with over 100 articles published and all seven continents firmly under my belt. I write with an engaging style and broad vocabulary borne of experience, having traveled and lived in more than 50 countries. Though traditionally focusing on travel writing and short fiction, I have had technical articles, press releases, and research reports published and have done some ghostwriting as well. My scrupulous attention to detail has allowed me the pleasure of proofreading and editing for a number of other writers over the years, while my malleable creativity puts me in a position to write in many styles and genres. The diversity of my abilities stems from my capacity to conduct intensive research in short periods of time and from my colorful background, including a stay at the South Pole and almost 10 cross-continental expeditions now. I love to write and research, and I would love to provide my services to you. Thank you for your interest and time.  less

    Hello! I'm a professional editor and author with years of experience in the publishing industry. I've worked with clients all over the world, regularly work with UK and US English, and have a BA (Hons) in English Language and Literature. I'm a UK native. Editing: As a former acquisitions editor for a fiction imprint, I have strong content and line editing skills; I worked with young adult, new adult, romance and commercial fiction. Developmental editing is a speciality; whether your fiction needs a plot evaluation or dialogue polish, or your non-fiction needs restructuring and packaging toward your target market--I'm your girl. It's hard to give portfolio "examples" of editing--every manuscript is different--but I'm always happy to edit the first pages of your work as a sample tailored to you. Creative Writing: I have six published novels under my belt, one of which was nominated for an RT Book Reviews award. I have a literary agent and am proud to say that I've sold thousands of books. In 2013, my paranormal television script was optioned by Midsummer Films. I'm also very up-to-date on news and trends within the publishing industry, and should you require advice on publishing methods or marketing, I'm available as a literary consultant.  less
