As an editor, my role is to improve your manuscript through questions, suggestions and encouragement.
For over five years I was the in-house editor with Ford Street Publishing, a children's and young adult publisher in Melbourne. As the manager of Ford Street's eBook list, I acquired expertise in eBooks and metadata.
I'm currently a contractor for international academic publisher Springer, and I've previously worked in marketing and author care at another global academic publisher, Taylor & Francis.
I have full membership with Editors Victoria and the Institute of Professional Editors (IPed), the national professional association for Australian and New Zealand editors – a journey that launched from a degree in Professional Writing.
Follow me on Facebook for tips and quotes on writing and editing, and to share insights about your writing life.
Of course, I love to read! Although I ran out of shelf space years ago, I cannot pass a bookstore. Crime and mystery, literary fiction, children's and young adult, classics, fantasy, humour, historical fiction and non-fiction, biography, craft - stories are my passion.
–Please note: In my freelance role I cannot recommend manuscripts to Ford Street Publishing, Springer or Taylor & Francis.–
