ABOUT MORE THAN WORDS 

More Than Words began as just me, a freelance editor and proofreader available for hire whatever stage an author had reached with their writing. I've seen projects quite literally grow from scribbles in a notebook to print, and have been there as the author’s wingman and sounding board for their frustrations, as well as their editor. Great trust is created in working relationship like this, and great books too. I look foward to hearing about your writing.

I've been asked so many times if I can design covers, typeset and format a book for print or Kindle, and provide advice on setting up an Amazon account, so set about expanding More Than Words into a publishing agency which could say Yes! to these services. 
 
But I wanted to be able to recommend a graphic designer who was not only great at their job, but who listened; and I needed a typesetter who could also answer the many questions authors have about publishing and their Amazon accounts. I wanted to use good people who work with the same level of attention and love of small details that I have. It was great, therefore, to join forces with Alice Kennedy as my graphic designer, and Clint MacDonald as my typesetter and Amazon uploader. 
 
Our individual roles in getting your book from scribbles to print is something we take huge pride in. We really hope you enjoy working with us. 

EXPERTISE AND AUTHORITY 

In the ten-plus years I've been editing I have, quite possibly, worked on every genre known to Amazon – although I’m happy to be proved wrong by something you might send me! I've edited fiction including crime, sci-fi, romance, mystery, comedy and dystopian. I have worked on non-fiction including self-help, philosophical, medical, historical, scientific, money and lifestyle. I have edited biographies and autobiographies, children’s books, cookery books and poetry. That amounts to over 300 authors with their distinct voices, writing styles and publishing goals. 
 
 
'Imagine if all you knew became a cage with wraparound rules a mile thick. Rules about sex. Rules that were cruel. Rules that made no sense. 
Rules you were told, repeatedly, were the only true truth.' 
 
Growing up within the constraints of the Jehovah's Witnesses there was an ache so deep to be free, and yet a fear so debilitating about what freedom would mean that for years the only truth I'd ever known kept me quiet, and mostly compliant. 
 
But then came the roar, the breaking, and the escape. 
And then the consequences. 
 
oOo 
 
 
 
 
Prior to working as a full-time editor I wrote editorials for a local magazine, interviewing politicians, musicians, magicians, psychics, professional sports personalities, chefs, amongst many others, and creating accurate, succinct articles that showcased their particular field of interest or profession. 
 
I gained a reputation for neither twisting nor embellishing their words, yet writing honestly and with an individual touch they loved and respected. 
 
My book, To Go Beneath the Water, an enquiry into the nature of belief and how it can shape (and indeed misshape) what we believe about our world and each other, has just been published. Written in the first instance as a young girl growing up with 'truths' about Armageddon, a god called Jehovah who was always watching me, and how he was going to kill all my little friends for not worshiping him properly, it raises the questions I was too frightened to ask. It also raises the questions we must all now ask about what we believe, especially if our beliefs cause fear, separation and deep hurt.
