Do you write fantasy, science-fiction or speculative fiction? Whether you want to follow the traditional route to publication or self-publish, I can help.

I’m a trained fiction editor with an MA in creative writing and previous in-house publishing experience. I offer a select range of services to help writers craft their best work.


Critique – A fresh, objective assessment of your manuscript and suggested guidance on where it can be improved. Make sure your story is as good as it can be.

Editing – A blend of line and copy-editing, tailored to you. Addresses spelling, grammar, punctuation and consistency issues and suggests ways to improve the artistry and flow of your words. (FREE SAMPLE: I will edit 500 words of your manuscript for free so you can see whether we’re a good fit for each other.)

Intensive Mini Edit – Not ready for a full critique or edit? By assessing your synopsis and the beginning of your manuscript, I can help you see where you can most improve your story and writing style.

I’m really glad I chose you to edit this project. Your feedback blows out of the water what I received from my last editor! – Meg Cowley, author

Sophie put me completely at ease with exactly what she felt was needed with my work and how I should expect to receive it back … it resulted in a very easy and valuable partnership. A fantastic experience that went far beyond my expectations. – Rachel Tetley, author

As a writer, working with you has been the best thing that’s happened to me … I want to add my relief and happiness that you ‘got’ what I was trying to do; you didn’t just edit the words; you understood the concepts and your feedback helped me to tighten everything up and make it so much better, both in terms of subtext and style. – Gina Maya, author
