Writer and Editor
I worked in publishing for many years before becoming a freelance writer and editor. After studying German at Swansea University, I got my first job as a lexicographer, compiling a German-English dictionary. Then I lived in Munich, translating, proofreading, and learning how to edit films as well as books. Back in London, I worked as an editor for an educational publisher and got hooked on creating exciting books for children. My publishing career took me on a zigzag course through preschool activity packs, board games, and educational toys, eventually leading me back to books. When I decided to work for myself, I began developing ideas for children's books and approached publishers with them.
