Specialist Fiction Editor Working with Indie Authors
Are you looking to self-publish? Do you want to make your manuscript the best it can be? I specialise in editing for indie authors of commercial fiction.
A good editor will help you get a bit of distance from your manuscript and will look at it with a dispassionate eye. Does your story flow? Will readers be engaged? Are there any inconsistencies? (So hard for a writer to spot, but so often pounced on by the eagle-eyed reader!)
Perhaps you just need someone to check all the points of grammar and punctuation in your manuscript, and that there are no spelling errors, before you go ahead and publish.
Whatever your needs, whether you’re just starting on your writing career or are already a seasoned author, I’d love to help. Having self-published several books of my own – two of which were Amazon bestsellers – I understand what independent authors go through in order to get their books to market.

A Bit about Me as an Author…
I’m the author of several contemporary romance novels (and one romantic suspense, too – an homage to my heroine, Mary Stewart). I’m also the editor of and contributor to bestselling anthology Miss Moonshine’s Emporium of Happy Endings. If you love an uplifting, feel-good read, you’ll find details of my novels here.
Besides my novels, I’m the author of a non-fiction historical work called Struggle and Suffrage in Halifax: Women’s Lives and the Fight for Equality. Women’s voices are all too often missing from the history books. This book looks at some of the key events in the fascinating history of the mill town of Halifax, West Yorkshire, from the point of view of the women who shaped the town. Researching this book was an eye-opener!
