About

Hi, I’m Claire. Nice to meet you.

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

I specialise in editing fantasy, women’s fiction and romance novels for authors who write in British English and American English. 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, fantasy, 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.

I have been a member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading since 2018. I worked through their suite of proofreading courses and I have completed training in copyediting and fiction editing. Check out my 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.
