Jane Hammett

Copy-editor and Proofreader



I only work on genres I know about, am happy reading and am familiar with. For example, I don’t read sci-fi so I don’t edit books in that genre!

I work on the following genres:

  • children’s fiction and non-fiction (from pre-school picture books to YA novels)
  • crime/detective/mystery/action/thriller/suspense
  • short stories/novellas
  • romance
  • erotica and adult fiction
  • general fiction, both contemporary and historical
  • women’s fiction
  • literary fiction

And non-fiction genres:

  • biography, autobiography, memoirs
  • self-help books
  • psychotherapy

I am happy to work on books in the following subjects:

Animals (behaviour, husbandry, welfare), biology, built environment, business/business studies, children's/teenage publishing, earth sciences, education (pre-school, early years, primary, literacy), English language (Old/Middle English – basic), English and Scottish literature and criticism, environment/energy (conservation, birds, countryside/nature, urban, wildlife), fiction (adult, children's, teenage, YA, erotic), finance, geography, history, home and leisure, humanities, ICT, management, media studies, midwifery, nursing, personal development (pregnancy and childbirth, relationships, self-help/popular psychology), poetry, social sciences (crime/criminology, sociology), horses (dressage, show jumping), gymnastics.
