NOW ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS
Did you know that I have over 15 years of experience in editorial, ghostwriting and publishing? I’m also the proud holder of a BA and MA in Creative Writing and English with distinction. My work has been produced and published both nationally and internationally and now I’m ready to help YOU with my skills and experience.
I LOVE words, and I want to help you shape your writing ready for publication.
If you are an author, screenwriter, dramatist or just love putting pen to paper, fingertips to keys, quill to parchment (okay, too much!) and need an outside opinion or someone to polish your manuscript, script, thesis or memoir then please get in touch. I offer great flexible rates and I’m open to any project, it doesn’t even have to be fiction! If you’re writing something for university, your business, or even your blog, you always need a good editor on board to make sure things run smoothly. No one is going to read your work if it’s littered with bad grammar and spelling!
If I especially like you and your writing, you never know, I may help you gain publicity for your new novel or short story collection, poetry or script by featuring you as one of LB’s Writers to Watch.
I love meeting new creatives and discovering new talent.

I have been a professional ghostwriter for publishers across the world for over five years and I have written in a variety of genres and on varying topics.

What People Are Saying…
Kate is an amazing talent. She followed my directions precisely, and delivered a final product better than I could have ever expected. Her writing style is superb – clear, easy to read, not over written but none the less paints a detailed picture in the readers mind. There is depth to the characters, an engaging plot and just the right of amount of irony. The romantic encounters were steamy hot. She also does her research, and placed my character in a very historical believable setting that was appropriate to the personality of the main character. Well done Kate. Highly recommended!!

Kate was brilliant!!! Firstly she finished the job before the deadline date and even when I asked for extra she surely didn’t mind. She always kept her word and with a simple story as mine she surely made it extremely exciting. Kate is extremely creative and in her work I can see her love for her job. I am definitely and officially a repeat customer because I can’t let such talent pass me by. Thanks again Kate

Kate is a real pleasure to work with on many levels. To be honest I have mixed feelings writing a testimonial for her because I want to keep her talents all to myself! She aces both sides of the game…she is a great writer who knows the romance genre AND she delivers her stories on time and is always responsive to feedback. She is also very versatile and able to deliver a short standalone story or an episodic interwoven series with equal facility. Her language, grammar and sentence structure make my editor’s jobs really easy as well. She is also a nice person to work with as an individual.

This is the second time I have used Kate and again she did not disappoint. For this project, Kate took a book I wrote and edited it for me. As I have used her before, I knew she was very good at what she does and for that reason I gave her creative license to improve my writing as she saw fit. I was amazed at how her improvements took my writing from amateur to pro with such skill and efficiency. Once again, I would highly recommend Kate to anybody who wants professional writing or editing services at a fantastic value. Thanks again Kate!
