Kate Moore

I offer the full range of editing services – from polishing proposals and reviewing first drafts to hands-on structural editing, copyediting and proofreading – and am equally at home working directly with authors or liaising with in-house editors.

 

I have a vast range of experience across multiple genres and edit fiction and non-fiction books. I specialise, however, in commercial non-fiction, including biography, gift, humour and history.

 

You can read testimonials from my authors.
