‘Wendy is a very experienced project manager and editor. She is efficient, knowledgeable, reliable and a joy to work

with. She expects good-quality

work from the people she commissions to work with

her and is clear about her requirements. I can thoroughly recommend her.’

Jan Cutler, Freelance Writer, Editor and Proofreader,

Belerion Communications

I have many years’ experience across a range of publishing, professional editorial training, practical craft as well as editorial skills and plenty of common sense.

My focus is on effective language – whatever the context.


In publishing, I mainly work in non-fiction, especially in the creative fields – consumer-based, market-led books that inform, entertain and get the job done.


My particular area of expertise is in the cookery market. I have worked with Daniel Galmiche, Ken Hom, Mary Berry, Madhur Jaffrey, Valentina Harris and Ainsley Harriott, as well as many talented if less illustrious authors.


In-house appointments include Foulsham Publishing, Purnell Books, Rodale Press, Oxford University Press and Macmillan Education. I have also undertaken many freelance commissions from publishers as diverse as Nourish, Pavilion, Arcturus, BBC, Garnet, Hamlyn, Anness and CLB, and I have published a number of books in the fields of cookery and practical information.
