Copy editing and proofreading

I have over ten years’ experience, have undertaken industry-recognised training and can work onscreen or on paper. You can rest assured that I never miss a deadline and always stay within budget. I will follow your house style and, if requested, am happy to liaise directly with the author regarding any queries after which I will provide a clean manuscript.


My regular clients include Canelo, Fairlight Books, OwnIt!, RefineCatch (Bloomsbury Academic, Bloomsbury Methuen Drama), Taylor & Francis (Routledge), Whitefox (Head of Zeus, Bonnier/Twenty7 Books, Unbound, Blue Baltic Press, Lake Union Publishing), Sue Richardson and Jo Fletcher Books (Quercus).


The main genres that I work on are:

  • Literary fiction

  • Crime/thriller

  • Romance

If you'd like to work with me or would like to know anything else, please get in touch.

Deborah is a joy to work with and always provides a diligent copy edit. She has been patient and flexible with project timings and always does a thorough job. She has a careful eye and a friendly attitude. I highly recommend her.

Sian Heap,

Commissioning Editor, Canelo

Deborah has been professional, accurate and timely on the projects I have worked with her on. Her judgement on when to leave the authorial style and when to intervene is spot on. It's a pleasure to work with Deborah and I would highly recommend her services.

Daniela Ferrante,

Editorial Assistant, Fairlight Books
