About me

Felicity Hughes is a British writer and editor based in Madrid. She’s written articles about the city for The Guardian and Lonely Planet and also writes the history blog The Making of Madrid. In a previous life, she worked as a journalist in Tokyo, delving into the wilder subcultures of Japan for publications including Bizarre magazine, Bon fashion magazine and The Japan Times. Her fiction has appeared in publications such as Litro. She’s particularly drawn to darker themes and enjoys exploring the shadowy forces that lurk beneath the surface of polite society. 
 
In addition to producing her own body of work, Felicity has worked with writers in a variety of different genres including, sci-fi, historical, literary, and women’s fiction. She firmly believes that there’s a compelling story at the heart of every manuscript and that it’s her job to help writers tell this in the best way possible.
 
Felicity has also been a professional copyeditor for more than 15 years. Over the course of her career, she’s worked for a variety of different publications, including Harper’s Bazaar, Decanter, and The Japan Times. All this experience has given her a keen eye for detail and a rock-solid grasp of the workings of English grammar, skills she brings to bear when copyediting and proofreading manuscripts.
