About

Hi, I’m Claire. Nice to meet you.

I am a proofreader and a copyeditor, specialising in indie fiction. Find out about my services, including the popular ‘proof-editing,’ here.

I have been in business since February 2018 and have edited romance, fantasy, and sci-fi novels as well as adventure, post-apoc and game-lit. Read testimonials from my author clients here.

I’m a voracious reader across a wide range of genres. I read literary fiction, women’s fiction, mysteries, crime and speculative fiction. Literary non-fiction and Young Adult works also regularly feature in the rotation. Most genres take at least an annual outing to my Kindle.

My academic background is in English literature and I studied for a BA at Keele University followed by a PGCE at the University of Leeds in the early 2000s.

Having started out deconstructing writer’s craft and word-wrangling teenagers’ creative efforts in the classroom, I decided to change career direction and switched from teaching to editing as my main occupation in my late-30s.

I joined the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading in 2018 and have worked through their suite of proofreading courses. Check out my training credentials below.

It’s a privilege to work with indie authors. The world deserves to read your book. Let me help you make that happen.
