MJ Pankey is passionate about working with authors to craft their greatest masterpiece and specializes in content editing, copyediting, and proofreading. She is an experienced editor in nearly every genre from fantasy to instructional how-tos. As a fellow writer, MJ understands the creative process and appreciates the complexity of author voice, style, and intent, which she carefully considers in each and every suggested edit of your manuscript.
MJ dives into all things bookish at every available opportunity. Some of her exploits include hosting the Augusta Writer's Critique Group, becoming a First Reader for The Colored Lens Speculative Fiction Magazine, and launching a podcast with friend and co-host, Katie Trescott, called the Buzzed British Book Club, where they (codenames "Kit" and "Bridge") drink tasty drinks and discuss books.
MJ is also the proud mother of three children, Dante, Athena, and Artemis, fur baby Petey, and beta fish Bluey.
MJ's own debut novel, Epic of Helinthia, publishes 1 October 2023.
With a background in journalism and 10 years working in the production side of book publishing, Sadie is used to wearing quite a few different hats - from copywriting and proofreading, to typesetting, eBook creation, and her personal favourite, book cover design. Having worked on hundreds of books and journals, unsurprisingly she’s a self-confessed bibliophile with a particular love of fiction, children’s literature, travel writing, and self-help.
After working in Sheffield and then remotely around the world, Sadie is now back in rainy NW England, renovating her crumbling house and sharing a home office with her husband and incredibly lazy, adopted greyhound Cordy.
