As an editor, the projects I work with are as diverse as my writing interests. I edit anthologies, collections, business and instruction books, diaries, cookbooks and tarot and oracle card sets. I specialise in structural editing of non-fiction. Each project undertaken is a new adventure.

I’ve worked with a number of small and independent presses over almost ten years, and served on several committees for writing and editing organisations. I’ve judged awards, which is a really satisfying thing to do, and at one stage I was the mentorship coordinator for both the Australasian Horror Writers Association and the Institute of Professional Editors.

In 2020, I did a mentorship with horror writer extraordinaire, Kaaron Warren, and it was one of the best things I’ve ever done. Thank you, Kaaron.
My publications are diverse, and some are available free to read online.
