I’m a freelance editor, self-published author, mother of two late-teen awesome humans and one big fluffy cat.

Originally from the south of England, I’ve lived in the glorious land of Aus since 2000, the last 14 years in Perth, Western Australia. (I feel very lucky!)

Words are my medium! Be it reading, writing, playing Scrabble, Bananagrams or Wordle, fiction, non-fiction, paperback books, Kindle or even on my phone – I love diving in, playing with, creating and shaping words.

I’ve been a copyeditor since 2011 after getting my Diploma of Publishing (Professional Book Editing, Proofreading and Publishing).  

Since then, I have edited novels, non-fiction, memoirs, theses, resumes, websites, essays, film scripts, and brochures.

As a writer, I know how much effort goes into creating a piece of writing, so I always treat my client’s work and feelings with respect. All my edits are suggestions, and I will explain why I’m making them. My aim is that my editing makes the author a better writer.

Please see some testimonials from happy clients.

I have also guided many clients through the self-publishing process and have run courses on how to self-publish.

Please contact me below if you want to find out more about me or my offerings.

Warmly, Karen

PS As an aspiring writer, I have made that dream come true by self-publishing my own cozy mystery series. For more about my author credentials please go to
