“Good writing is rewriting.” – Truman Capote

I have over thirty years’ experience working in the book industry as an editor, many of those with the iconic romantic fiction house, Harlequin Mills & Boon. There I published the world’s most popular category romance series, Harlequin Presents, and worked with some of Harlequin’s best-selling authors. Later, I led the series editorial team. I also pioneered Harlequin’s first home-grown English Language romance series in India, publishing local writers. I have won book awards, including two RITAs®.

For more than three years now, I have been working as a freelance fiction editor, dealing with published and aspiring writers from all over the world, and also taking commissions from publishers and Cornerstones Literary Consultancy. Though romance is my first love, I deal with all genre and category fiction, including popular women’s, historical, paranormal, erotica, young adult, inspirational, multi-cultural, m/m, /f/f, thrillers and sci-fi. I am proud to collaborate with authors who are thriving in the self-published sector, such as Kate Hewitt, Katie Regnery (NYT/USA Today bestseller), Mia Sheridan (NYT/USA Today Bestseller), Kylie Gilmore (USA Today bestseller), Elizabeth Johns, Kristine Mason, Jennifer Faye, Margaret Locke (2016 Holt Medallion finalist), Rissa Brahm and Mimi Barbour (NYT Bestseller).

I have also launched my own writing career, as Joanne Walsh, publishing romance with Entangled Indulgence and Tule Publishing.
