Editor

Self-employed
November, 1993 – Present (about 24 years)

My help has been welcomed by many writers and publishers over the years since I became a professional copy-editor. I act as a 'guinea-pig reader' who can not only check anomalies and detect knowledge gaps, but also help ensure your meaning comes through clearly, without ambiguity and in the language your readership will be happy with.

Trans-Siberian Adventures: Life on and off the rails from the U.K. to Asia

Matthew Woodward

It’s just a big train ride – what could possibly go wrong on a 12,500 km journey across Russia, Mongolia and China in the depths of winter? Matthew Woodward resolves to escape from his desk and rekindle his childhood love of travel by train. Knowing little of the red tape, cultural differences and climate ahead, Matthew sets off alone across the North Sea bound for Shanghai. Trans-Siberian Adv... read more

Caithness to Patagonia: Distant Lands and Close Relatives

Underwater Potholer: A Cave Diver's Memories (Whittles Dive)

Duncan Price

Duncan’s curiosity has got him into a lot of tight spots – quite literally! As a teenager, Duncan really wanted to be an astronaut but took to the exploration of inner space instead. Only a dozen men might have stood on the moon but Duncan has squeezed into many places that no one has ever been before, and some places that no one is ever likely to go again (probably for a very good reason).
