Since taking up editing in 2017 I have edited 20 adult fiction novels of various genres, 2 children’s novels, and 2 autobiographies. Some of these novels have been for Nine Elms Books (a small UK publisher), one for Page Turner Awards, and the rest directly for authors. Details of all of these including links to publications and Amazon reviews can be found below.

For the last three years (2020, 2021, 2022, and ongoing) I have been the in-house editor for Page Turner Awards. Through them I offer editor feedback or sample editing on authors’ (max. 3000 words) competition entries, providing writers with a cost-effective way to get style assessment by a professional editor. In 2020 I edited/fed back for 24 authors, in 2021 for 70, and in 2022 for 57.
