Writer and editor
Elaine Frieman Herbert
Having spent most of her time growing up in the Peach State of Georgia, Elaine a UK-based professional editor who freelances part-time. (And sister to Jaelithe.)
She has both a Bachelor's and Master's degree in English and Literature and she is a dual British and American citizen.
Elaine is a former marketing content writer who has written hundreds of blog posts, content downloads, landing pages, thank you pages, email marketing messages, and articles on disparate topics for several clients, using SEO and marketing best practice. She also taught English, Literature, research, and writing at two universities, one community college, and one technical college in the States and at one university on two military bases in Germany for a total of five years before embarking on my writing and editing career.
During the week, she is a full-time editor, and she manages the Europe copy editing team for a FTSE 100 data analytics and publishing company. In her previous role, she worked as a textbook and course materials editor for an educational non-profit charity and social enterprise for professional qualifications in the UK business sector (that's a mouthful), but writing is her passion and her outlet. She feels fortunate to write content for companies she believes in and the socially-minded people who run them.
Elaine lives in West Yorkshire with her husband, Michael.
Jaelithe Morgan Baxendale
Jae is a fashion and lifestyle writer with a particular interest in issues facing those with disabilities due to her own rare condition, hereditary spastic paraparesis.
She studied biochemistry at Manchester University and did a year out at Tulane University in New Orleans. It was possibly one of the most eye-opening years of her life.
She is currently a stay-at-home mum while studying for her degree in history at the OU – and freelance writing on the side.
In her spare time, she enjoys reading, true crime podcasts, sewing, and spending time with her pets: the cute but destructive indoor bunnies and her ancient cat, Martha.
Jae lives in West Yorkshire with her husband, Robert, and daughter, Caroline. (Plus, Martha, Pepper, and Cinnamon.)
