If you're looking for a book editor who understands the struggles of writing and publishing – you're in the right place! I'm Rachel, an editor and writer, and I help authors and publishers shape and polish their stories with a kind and gentle, but honest, hand. Good editing should inspire you, not tear you down, so you can craft a book you're really proud of. I've been where you are, and I combine my writing and editorial experience to support you every step of the way.
I specialise in genre fiction, in particular fantasy, sci-fi, horror, crime/thrillers and romcoms, as well as YA and middle grade.
I also edit creative non-fiction, including memoirs, autobiographies, and personal development.

Your manuscript assessment was exactly what I was hoping for. You confirmed some thoughts I had, raised plenty of new ones and helped me see where things were working where otherwise I had doubts. My head was nodding throughout and I found your suggestions/explanations inspiring. I can’t wait to get to work. Thank you so much.
I am a new writer, and Rachel not only seemed very interested in my book, but she often communicated with me about the editing itself, which I was very new at. Rachel went over my monster of a manuscript and showed me parts that needed to be rewritten, fixed, and changed and I feel my manuscript will become better because of it. If you are a new writer, and would like a professional to go over your book, I believe Rachel is one of the most devoted to making your book the best it can be. – A.L. Hornbeck, fantasy author
