About Nicola


Greetings!

My name is Nicola. I was born in England but now live in Adelaide, South Australia. I have loved both reading and writing from a young age and am also a keen linguist, having studied several foreign languages. I have completed a BA (hons) English with French, a PGDip in Translation and a Diploma in Editing/Higher Diploma in Publishing as well as several short courses in different aspects of creative writing.

I started as a freelance editor and proofreader in 2012, working initially for several small presses and now predominantly with indie authors. In 2017, I joined the Australian Institute of Professional Editors, and I hope to take their official accreditation examination in due course.
