I provide a bespoke editorial service, offering advice and guidance to help writers of all kinds feel confident about the quality of their manuscripts.

Drop me a line to find out how I could help you, and enquire about my free sample editing service.


Fiction Editing

I offer developmental editing, copy-editing and proofreading services for novels, working with authors to ensure that their fiction manuscripts are the best they can be.


Academic Editing

I work with scholars to polish their manuscripts for peer review, specialising in working with academics for whom English is not their first language.


I write fiction and non-fiction, working with small independent publishers to produce local history and tourist guides as well as fantasy novels and thrillers.


I run an online creative journalling group, hosting regular challenges and events for the members. I am working on a suite of journalling resources for writers.

Meet your editor!

Hi there! I’m Louise, and I live and work in Derbyshire in the UK. I have been a freelance author and editor for over a decade, and during that time I have worked with writers and publishers in a wide range of subject areas and disciplines.

I love to work closely with authors, preserving their individual voice while offering guidance to improve their manuscripts and get them ready for publication. My particular specialisms are fiction (novels, novellas and short stories) and academic papers written by speakers of languages other than English.

Drop me a line to find out more, or to enquire about my free sample editing service.
