Fiction editing

It’s all about making your words work, beautifully.


If you’re familiar with the editing process, please browse the options to the left (below, if you’re on a mobile). If you’re not sure, then I’d suggest getting in touch using the email link here. We can discuss your work, what stage you’re at, what kind of editorial help you need. There are all sorts of options. An Opening Critique, looks at your first chapter to make sure you’re on the right track. An Agent’s Critique is helpful if you’ve had rejections from agents or publishers. My signature service is a full Developmental Edit on an entire finished manuscript . For more proactive longer-term help, we can discuss Mentoring (writer coaching), or a Writer’s Retreat.

About me.

I’m a member of the SfEP, a partner member of ALLi, and an affiliate editor of, the premier writing website in Ireland. I regularly contribute to the Irish Times on writing matters, as well as local press, and I’m soon to be a published author, with a YA novel “Evenrood” coming out in July, 2017. Although I’ve gone the traditional route, I strongly believe that self-publishing can give a voice to many independent authors otherwise neglected by the traditional publishing world. I’ve helped authors realise their self-publishing ambitions, and also helped writers achieve award success and secure traditional publishing deals (see my testimonials page). I’d love to help you realise your story-telling dreams. Get in touch!
