My name is Marianne Coote, and I help writers hone and enhance their work without altering their distinctive voices.
I live in London but have called many other places home, including: Wiltshire, Muscat, Rio de Janeiro, Málaga, Montréal and Taipei.
Before launching my editorial business, I was an English teacher in Taiwan. I taught everything from phonics to IELTS preparation classes. I also worked as a columnist and social media editor for an online magazine.
When I'm not editing, I enjoy reading, writing, baking, eating my own weight in pasta and posting photos on Instagram. (Not of the pasta eating though. No one needs to see that).
