Editorial Portfolio

James Aichinger

In between a job as a rocket-scientist (sorry James, I know it’s more complicated than that!) and living in Germany with his wife and daughter, James writes. I was delighted to be asked to help edit his first novel, Edge of the Flame, which was self-published in December 2019.



In August 2015 I began working as Assistant Editor for this female-focused site for women who climb and do adventurous things. Editing articles, writing bios, and doing research for features, I supported founder Emily wherever needed until May 2016.


Christopher Bramleythe serpent calls

The Serpent Calls is Christopher Bramley’s first instalment in The Chaoswar Trilogy. I had the pleasure of working on this text and seeing it develop from a 400 page document to an even longer paperback. Having never read fantasy before, I loved getting stuck into a new genre and cutting my teeth on the world of dragons.
