This February we are absolutely smitten with our new Members! Read on to find out what they’ll be working on at The Melting Pot…
Jesse Alexander Cameron, is originally from Canada and moved to Scotland last year! Alongside the big move Jesse founded Thistle Editing. He told us, “I take much pride in my work of editing other writer’s manuscripts. I don’t know if I will ever push myself to publish my own work, but assisting other authors to achieve their dream gives me a lot of joy. Editing allows me to touch greatness; you never know who will be the next Austen, Dickens, Hemingway or Tolstoy.” When not working Jesse enjoys road trips, exploring Scotland, football and nights at the pub with a good whisky – our kinda guy!
