Meet Oliver

Fiction editor, writer, and compulsive reader…

I learnt the business of publishing as an editorial assistant at Taylor & Francis. I loved my job, but after working there for a year and doing freelance writing on the side, I began to break into commercial publishing as a freelance editor, helping many authors and organisations refine their ideas, improve their language, and self-publish their work.
In 2020, I wanted to create an official platform for my services, and thus Oliver Whiskard Editorial was born. Since then, I have worked on a number of novels, many of which are published in print and e-book format on Amazon.
Clients love my sharp eye for detail and professional service, and I have developed a reputation for being generous with my advice and willing to go all out to help writers improve for future projects.
I was born in the UK and studied English Literature at University College London, but I’m currently based in Portugal. My clients come from all over the world and desire to tap into many different genres and styles, but they all have one thing in common—they want to make their stories as compelling and readable as possible.
I help them with that mission in the knowledge that every author has their own unique voice and life experiences, and that it’s the editor’s job to reveal the best possible version of their book.

This is the second novel that Ollie has edited for me. He is extremely good at what he does and a pleasure to work with. He pays attention to detail and has given me valuable feedback to take to my next book. I would recommend Ollie to any author looking for a high-quality editor.

I hired Oliver for my memoir on a recommendation and did not regret it. Though I hired him for mechanics only, he went above and beyond to ensure my manuscript was ready on time with much more in-depth work than I expected. I have much more confidence about my book hitting the shelves now and will certainly be hiring him in the future.

Ollie is highly proficient and detail-oriented, which, as a first-time author, was invaluable. I was nervous about the selection of an editor and interviewed four different people. After speaking with Ollie directly, the choice was an obvious one. I would highly recommend Ollie to any writer who is looking for someone reliable to entrust with their manuscript, and who’s as engaged and invested in the success of your book as you are.

It was such a pleasure working with Oliver. He was always so very thoughtful and honest in his comments, and the revisions he suggested were always perfect. He knew what would be appealing to my younger audience. I couldn’t have asked for a better editor.
