Jennifer Kay Davies

Jennifer is a copyeditor and proofreader currently based in Southampton, UK. She studied English at Winchester University, and she trained as an editor with the Publishing Training Centre and the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading. She works with publishers as well as self-publishing authors.

In her free time, when she’s not editing or proofreading books, she’s usually reading them, and one of her favourite genres is historical fiction. She’s fascinated by history in general, but some of her favourite periods of time to read about include the Tudor era, the Victorian era, and even as far back as the Silk Road and Ancient Egypt. She also enjoys watching historical dramas, and her two favourites are Peaky Blinders and Downton Abbey.

If Jennifer were stranded on a desert island, the historical novels she would want with her are The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini, which she’s read at least ten times over, and The Tea Rose by Jennifer Donnelly, the first in a trilogy set across Northern Ireland, London, Kenya and New York between 1888 and 1914.
