If you have written a children's or a young adult (YA) book, you are venturing into a vast and competitive market. Consequently, you need to be confident that the person editing or proofreading that text has the right knowledge and experience to do the job, as there are particular considerations pertaining to content and language that apply specifically to this area of fiction.
Her expertise ensures that everything we write is held to the highest possible standard. Her thoroughness has been invaluable, ensuring that each book is a joy to read and a delight for young minds.

Professional experience you can trust
Alongside ten years of in-house experience as a children's editor, and regular children's and young-adult commissions as a freelance, I have a genuine enjoyment of children's and YA literature, as well as illustrated picture books, and possess many transferable skills from other areas of my work.
Gale has edited all of our books to date and without our trusted editor, we would truly panic. She knocked us into shape with the first book in our series and has been an integral part of every book since.
