Editing and writing

I have been a book editor for seventeen years – how the time flies. I offer developmental, structural and line editing to emerging non-contracted writers, as well as working for publishers on a freelance basis.

I am a helper of writers, a polisher of words, a lover of story, a safe but incisive pair of hands.

I am also a writer.

I have been told that I edit the way a writer writes – from the inside out.

This is a review of a recent edit I did for emerging writer I.H. Laking.
