My editing style
I’m a gentle, but firm, developmental editor. While my job is to lead you to solutions, your manuscript is your manuscript, always. I will work with you to elevate your work, while keeping your ideas and voice authentic. I believe in encouraging, constructive feedback and an open dialogue about your goals and ambitions. We’ll try to have some fun along the way, too.
I opened Carta Editorial Services in 2018, with an aim to provide novice- and debut authors with friendly and affordable editing services. Since then, I have worked extensively with authors from all over the world who have gone on to query or self-publish high-quality manuscripts.
I have 5 years’ experience as an editor and 17 years’ experience as a beta reader. I’m a judge at a prestigious international literary awards program and a beta reader at a leading Australian writers’ centre. My background includes journalism, fitness and agriculture. I’ve lived in Norway and the UK, and now call Australia home.
When I’m not editing, I like to read, hike, solve puzzles and kill plants in increasingly creative ways because the internet told me to. I live on a beach in WA with my partner and our two cats.
