Writing and editing

I specialise in writing and editing magazine features and consumer information on a wide range of health topics and lifestyle issues (see below for my list of current and past clients). I’ve worked on a freelance basis for magazines, websites, publishers, charities, organisations and companies. I have a BSc. in Biomedical Science and an MSc. in Science Communication.

I also copy-edit memoir (including celebrity memoir), fiction and non-fiction books.

I’ve read several Jewish-themed books before publication for publishers and authors, to check for accuracy and authenticity on Jewish culture and religious practices.

In September 2019, I was given an Honourable Mention in the DHH Literary Agency New Voices Award 2019 for my novel, The Redeemer. The Redeemer, the first book in my Shanna Regan murder mystery series, is published by Three Crowns Publishing UK (for details, please click on the tab above). You can buy The Redeemer from Amazon here and from other leading book retailers.
