Green Gables Editing

With twenty years’ experience in editing, media and PR, I work on a wide range of materials in varying genres and on different platforms. I specialise in supporting self-published authors, not only editing and proofreading but also typesetting and producing books for publication.

I have edited fiction and memoirs but I also work on articles, reports, press releases, dissertations and essays, both editing and performing extensive rewrites, maintaining both the message and the voice of my client. I’m happy to fact check and engage in research.

I’ve written and edited copy for, and managed the production of, military, dentistry, technology and consumer magazines; created copy for corporate websites; and written news and features on a range of subjects from travel to underground coal gasification.

I am also very keen to support those for whom English is not the first language, or those who lack confidence in their writing skills but still have a story to tell.
