I’m an editor and proofreader specialising in historical fiction.
I work on all historical periods, from prehistory to contemporary history, and on all subgenres of historical fiction, including action/adventure, crime/mystery/thriller, family sagas, and romance. I also work on historical fiction for children and young adults.

When I’m not editing historical fiction (or reading it for pleasure) I enjoy baking and gardening.
