I am an editor and writer with 16 years of experience in a variety of settings including book publishing, websites, e-learning and consumer and B2B media. I am available for short-term projects calling for a diligent and creative wordsmith with technical skills and a passion for high quality pages. I am a keen reader and writer of crime, speculative fiction and fantasy and I kept a daily blog for ten years.
Clare Law has been Bloodhound Books’ go-to editor for some time. She represents everything we could ask for from a freelance editor; her work is consistently excellent, she’s extremely reliable and a pleasure to work with. Her keen eye for detail, her obvious enthusiasm and her communicative approach sets her apart from the rest. I would not hesitate to recommend Clare Law for any copy-editing assignments.
Fred Freeman, founder of Bloodhound Books
I hope I can have you as my editor for my next book, too.
