Editing is an art form.
As a professionally trained writer and editor, my approach to editing is informed by my understanding about the technical craft of writing and the mechanics of how to write.
I provide my authors with a wealth of knowledge and expertise while being sensitive to the deeper connections we have with our manuscripts.
Being a generous, approachable, encouraging editor, I love helping writers achieve their dreams.
about YOUR EDITOR
Although I hold a candle for children’s literature and works that promote strong use of storytelling, I enjoy working on a range of texts. I provide respectful, thoughtful feedback that inspires authors to develop their writing and their understanding of themselves as writers. I often work with high-achievers, deep thinkers and those passionate about their projects.
Over my career, I’ve edited life-stories, children’s books, poetry books, creative non-fiction, fiction, official correspondence, academic & feature articles, theses, training manuals, Christian texts, business plans, resumes, blogs, website content, Linkedin profiles, and more recently, a coffee table book of recollections & recipes.
As a writer who actively engages in the creative process, I invest in my authors by encouraging and motivating them to meet their professional dreams and goals. I can be found cheering them on at their book launches and taking pleasure in their achievements.
My formal qualifications include: Bachelor of Arts in English Language and Literature; Advanced Diploma in Creative Writing; Diploma in Editing, Proofreading and Publishing; Cert IV in New Small Business.
Editor. Author. Poet.
