I’m an Intermediate Member of the UK’s Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP).
As a former EU policy advisor for the UK Government, my areas of non-fiction expertise include:
– UK Government and Westminster politics
– European Union and wider international relations (including Brexit)
– UK and EU Justice and Home Affairs
– UK and EU legislative procedure
– policy-making and influencing
I also specialise in some areas of fiction, including:
– speculative fiction
– dystopian fiction
While these two specialisms might at first seem quite disparate, I’ve found that my experience actually helps enormously in terms of world-building and politics in fiction. I’m always keen to work with writers who want to explore the challenges we face as a species. After all, politics is just future dystopia happening on the news.
I am also a huge fan of sci-fi / fantasy / graphic novels / games / all things geek.

Testimonial: “I went through my novel multiple times, and had a few friends help me. I spent hours and hours, but in the end, I was still surprised by how many flaws I missed; grammar, inconsistencies, plot holes, incorrect use of language… These kind of errors would make me cringe if I found out about them after sending my work to an agent or publishing house. I’m really glad I hired Kate. She’s helped me tremendously in ironing out my novel to a professional standard.”
Testimonial: “I think these are the best feedbacks I’ve ever gotten. I knew I had technical aspects that were holding things hostage, but having a fresh pair of eyes be able to objectively spot where I’ve been making those mistakes is extremely helpful and saves so much time. You’ve made my month!”
Testimonial: “When I set out to write a book my plan was to write something good and then give it to a competent editor who could make it great. Kate did that and much more.”
