The best thing about being a non-fiction editor is working with writers from different professional backgrounds and helping them make their book the best it can be.
I've edited books by soldiers, comedians, vets, policemen, singers, actors ... I have always developed great relationships with authors I've worked with, and I'm equally happy dealing directly with the author or an in-house editor.
I've worked on a whole range of books across many genres, including sport, history, autobiography and memoir, popular culture, music, travel writing and humour. There are some examples below, and you can read some endorsements from people I've worked with here.
I have also written and co-written books and I have curated anthologies of quotations, from Virginia Woolf to Buffy the Vampire Slayer!
