Hi - my name is Jacqui and I'm here to help!

I left the corporate world of hospitality and gaming to pursue my love of words, and assist authors to be the best they can be. I love working with writers to take the worlds they envision and share them with eager readers.

I have a BA (cum laude) in Linguistics and Psychology from UNISA, and am certified in editing and proofreading through the SA Writer's Academy. I am also a member of the Professional Editor's Guild in South Africa. I write articles and product descriptions for Great Content and I review books for Onlinebookclub, NetGalley, Reedsy, and a number of publishing houses. I am a voracious reader and keep a blog for my book reviews.

By night I am a gym instructor and love to spend time in nature and recharge by walking on the beach.
