As a freelance editor, I offer manuscript assessment, structural editing, copyediting, proofreading, copy writing, and typesetting where it complements editorial work.
During my six years at Penguin Books Australia, I was an Editor and then a Senior Editor in the Young Readers division and worked on projects with some of the country's best writers and illustrators, including Terry Denton, Sally Rippin, Pamela Allen, Marc Martin, Sofie Laguna and Mem Fox.
While my specialty is children's trade fiction (specifically picture books and middle grade), I have almost a decade of diverse freelance experience. From bridal magazines to science PhDs, educational games to wine guides, fantasy novels to literary fiction, self-help books, textbooks, cook books - I've done them all. Managing a project through all the editorial stages, from roughest manuscript to polished final product, is sort of my thing.
