WHAT CLAIRE SAYS ABOUT EDITING
I have been working with Jericho Writers to help new writers to achieve their dream of becoming a published author for over ten years and have worked privately with clients for many years before that. I have had a great deal of joy and a good career from writing and I am passionate about passing on some of the wisdom I’ve gleaned over my 35 years on the job. Seeing a new writer’s delight as their book improves and their confidence grows gives me untold pleasure and satisfaction. Whether you want to record your story for your family or want to reach a mass market with your message, it feels great to be able to help you achieve that aim.
My particular passion and expertise lie in the field of biography, mind/body/spirit, travel, parenting and natural health writing and all forms of creative non-fiction. I am happy to help you to realise your writing ambitions, to produce your best book and to make it as marketable as possible.
