I’m a freelance editor, proofreader, and writer living in the beautiful, inspirational city of Edinburgh.
I have previously worked on educational resources and articles for the Raspberry Pi Foundation, and was subeditor of The MagPi Magazine. I’ve worked as a copywriter for major security firms, enabled construction companies to attract new projects, and edited text for successful mobile games.
Outside the day job, I write short stories and novels, mainly YA but sometimes for adults. My fiction and creative non-fiction has been published by the Scottish Book Trust, 26, Freight Press, Monstrous Regiment, Ellipsis Zine, and the Dangerous Women project. In 2016 I was chosen as a UNESCO Emerging Writer, reading a short story at the Edinburgh International Book Festival as part of Story Shop. I was also shortlisted as one of 44 writers for Penguin Random House’s WriteNow initiative for marginalised authors.
I’m currently looking for representation for my first novel, an urban fantasy set in Edinburgh. In my spare time I tend to my growing pile of games consoles and musical instruments, and learn more languages than is healthy.
