Barbara Eastman - Editor

Bidford-On-Avon, UK

Friendly New Zealander with a great work ethic and a professional approach.

Overview

In a previous lifetime I had a career in IT, becoming a Fellow of the British Computer Society, a Chartered IT Professional and a Chartered Engineer. Retraining first as a proofreader and then as a copy editor has vastly improved my commute and increased my joie de vivre.
I love being given the opportunity to polish text and help authors to engage their audience.
Although most of my work is on academic books, I have also worked on self-help books, biographies, corporate brochures, marketing flyers and websites.
