Hello! I’m Eleanor Bolton.

Treetop Editing is owned and run by me, so you can be confident in knowing that you will be dealing directly with me at all times.

My background
My main interests are music, travel, and board games. I have played the violin since I was a small child, and am now learning the piano. I spent several years playing in the Nottingham Philharmonic Orchestra and small chamber orchestras in the UK and am currently a member of Houston Sinfonietta. I have played board games for most of my life and am now teaching my children (currently aged 9 and 7). Their favorite games at the moment are Zombie Kids and My Little Scythe. We have just introduced them to Cartagena and Wingspan.

I’m British but have spent almost a decade experiencing life in other countries: China, India, and now America.

It is usually best to choose an editor who has some knowledge of your chosen genre or subject area. If I don’t think I am suitable to edit your work I will be honest and point you in the direction of someone more appropriate.
