Writing and Editing

I specialise in writing and editing magazine features and consumer information on a wide range of health topics and lifestyle issues. I have worked on a freelance basis for magazines, websites, publishers, charities, organisations and companies.

I proofread and copyedit fiction and non-fiction (including memoir) for UK publishers and authors. Scroll down for details of my editorial experience and my past and present client list. If you would like to know more about my proofreading, please click here.

Between 2017 and 2018, I updated the bestselling baby healthcare book Your Baby Week by Week by Dr Caroline Fertleman and Simone Cave for Ebury/Vermilion. My own health book, Allergies: A Parent’s Guide, was published by Need2Know Books in 2009.

I have a BSc. in Biomedical Science from King’s College London and an MSc. in Science Communication from Imperial College London.
