About me

Born in Brighton, England, I graduated from University College London with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature. Since then I've spent more than 20 years in the publishing industry, working as both a writer and editor in almost every variety of written media.

As well as writing articles, features and reviews for newspapers and magazines, I've created tailored content for business websites, scripted comic strips and even provided dialogue for video games. I'm also a professionally published author of science-fiction and horror stories.

My experience as an editor is long-standing and diverse, taking in magazines, comic books, custom publishing for corporations and books, and the professional editing of fiction and non-fiction works. Starting from the position that every writer and every project is unique, I combine the expected keen eye for detail with a flexibility and lightness of touch that ensures the process of editing strengthens the writing without overwhelming the individual style of the writer.

I now live in Perth, Western Australia, and regularly take on projects in Australia, the UK and the United States.
