Inclusion consultant and editor for children’s trade and educational products.
I work with publishers to ensure that their products are authentically inclusive and diverse.


With years of experience in authentic inclusion and diverse representation, I bring a fresh perspective to any children’s book project alongside my traditional editorial skills. I work with children's trade and educational publishers in a range of capacities, from copy-editing and proofreading, to developmental editing, commissioning and editorial management, with inclusion always at the forefront of everything I do.

Diversity and inclusion may be the current buzzwords in children's publishing, but I've been helping to create inclusive books since 2005, and had interest and experience in inclusion long before that. My experience can save you starting from scratch – I’ve been there, made the mistakes and learned from them, so you don’t have to.

Above all, children's books must tell great stories. But ANY story or product can be inclusive and my passion is to show you how to achieve this whilst ensuring that any diverse representation is truly authentic without perpetuating stereotypes.
