Overview

With over 10 years' experience in publishing, I offer copy-editing, proofreading and writing to publishers, businesses and individuals who want their text to be as good as it can and should be. As an Advanced Professional Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP), I'm passionate about my craft and keep my skills up-to-date with its courses and resources.

Over the years, I have had the pleasure of working with international publishers, businesses and authors. I have taken on everything from books and journal manuscripts, B2B magazines and press releases, to website copy, and even high-profile events invitations for a variety of clients from different backgrounds — see here for what some of them have to say.

My experience covers a wide range of non-fiction, largely scientific subjects for academic books, essays and articles — from all the gory details of Medicine and Dentistry, to Earth Sciences, Quantum Mechanics and Schrödinger’s cat.

Please do feel free to get in touch to find out more about how I can help. You can also find me on LinkedIn and Twitter.
