Over 15 years as an in-house and freelance editor I have worked with authors from around the world, including Jo Nesbø, Henning Mankell, Haruki Murakami, Gail Jones, Arnaldur Indridason, Susan Philpott, Nicholas Shakespeare, Dani Couture, Emily Saso, and Kerri Sakamoto.


To enquire about manuscript development, structural editing, copy editing or proofreading services for manuscripts at any stage of development, whether you are planning to self publish or looking for a spit and polish before submitting your draft to an agent, drop me a line to see how we might work together to make your words shine.

“Becky was my first editor in the UK. I was a happy writer until she left for Canada. She left me. I did not leave her. Why, Becky?”
Jo Nesbø, New York Times and Sunday Times (UK) bestselling author of the Harry Hole series

“Becky Toyne sees both the forest and the trees of a manuscript. There is a careful grace to her edits. Her work is comprehensive, thoughtful, and immensely valuable.”
Dani Couture, author of Algoma

“Becky shines a spotlight on every crack, crevice and loose end. Her feedback is clear, concise and offered with a healthy dose of humour. Becky made me a better writer. What more is there to say?”
Susan Philpott, author of Blown Red and Canadian bestseller Dark Territory
