My editing work covers fiction and non-fiction.
In fiction, I specialise in children’s books, historical fiction and crime, though I’m happy to discuss whether I think I’d be a good fit for work across a wide range of genres: I have experience with everything from techno-thrillers to women’s fiction. As my PhD was about how history is transformed in fiction versus non-fiction, I also do a lot of work with books that fall somewhere between life-writing, family history, autobiography and biography.
In terms of non-fiction, I specialise in human rights-related projects, particularly in the area of male violence against women and girls. Since I regularly work with NGOs and charities as well as in academia, I do a lot of work ‘bridging gaps’ for practitioners who want to publish in academic journals and academics who want to write news-stories, information leaflets and funding applications. As former Executive Editor of an international human rights journal, I also thrive on the challenge of working on projects with multiple authors, including non-native English speakers.
Examples of my non-fiction work:
In 2010, I edited the implementation manual for the Optional Protocol to the UN Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (revised edition) for the APT. The manual can be downloaded here.
In 2009 and 2010, I edited Parts I and II of Preventing Torture in the 21st Century: Monitoring in Europe Two Decades On, Monitoring Globally Two Years On, which can be downloaded via the archive menu of the EHRR website.
