About Me

About Me

Hi, I’m Kate! (she/her)

I’m based in London but I work with clients all over the world – and I edit in UK, US, and Canadian English.

I specialise in editing and proofreading:

  • Horror
  • Fantasy
  • Dystopian fiction
  • LitRPG
  • Comics and graphic novels
  • Board games and TTRPGs

As an editor, my job is to support and encourage rather than criticise. I want to work with you to enhance your voice and make sure your vision is clear to the reader.

In my spare time, I’m a huge fan of horror/ fantasy / graphic novels / games / all things geek. When I’m not editing, you can find me reading, writing, watching something new on Netflix, playing on my PS5, or scheming on behalf of my D&D characters.

Memberships and Training

I’m an Intermediate Member of the UK’s Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP), formerly the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP), and a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association (EFA) in the US. I’m also a Partner Member of the Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi).
