I currently run my own editing and ghostwriting business in the UK, and I am a full-time, qualified fiction writer with a long publication history. Writing is my passion and I love working with writers from around the world to perfect their written English or ghostwrite the stories they want to read. I am a native English speaker, born and raised in the UK. I have a BA degree (English and Writing) and MA Masters degree (Writing). I am also a qualified TEFL/TESOL teacher, certified by Cambridge University (CELTA), and so am familiar with syntax and translations from non-native writers. I am very interested in hearing about proofreading and editing projects, as I have significant experience working on essays, dissertations/theses, fiction, screenplays, articles, websites & poetry, etc.. **Please note that I am not currently accepting any ghostwriting projects. I never accept rewriting/de-plagiarising projects.**
