As an editor, I see my role as improving your manuscript through questions, suggestions and encouragement. I would love to bring my skills and enthusiasm to your piece.
For over five years I was the in-house editor with Ford Street Publishing, a children's and young adult publisher in Melbourne. I also coordinated Ford Street's eBook list, and so have expertise in eBooks and metadata.
I'm currently a contractor for academic publisher Springer, and until recently I worked at Taylor & Francis in marketing and author care.
I have full membership with the Institute of Professional Editors, and a degree in Professional Writing.

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 and their meticulous organisation - are my passion.
* Please note: In my freelance role I cannot recommend manuscripts to Ford Street Publishing, Springer or Taylor & Francis.
