I have 6 years’ experience in copy editing in law, anthropology and history books, plus developmental editing, and acquisition, of legal practitioner titles. I have also over 7 years’ experience in online multi-channel operational management and strategic development for a broad range of brands, verticals and business models. After a 7 year stint in online marketing, I am ready to get back into publishing!
I researched topics on specific areas of law, then found law practitioners who were specialists therein to write practitioner titles. I also consulted on the book's structure, table of contents, book design, and marketing blurb. Had my titles reached the printing stage, I would have developmentally edited the title for flow and coherency.
I managed in-house editors and reviewed monthly/bi-monthly content for twelve different legal subscription products and two bound volumes. The content was reviewed for structure, grammar, and coherency, as well as best placement within the subscription binders. I also executed market research and trend analysis, including writing interview scripts, web surveys and competitive analysis.
I thoroughly reviewed and copy edited non-fiction academic works focusing on sociology, ethnography, anthropology, history and politics for printing in both the US and the United Kingdom. The copy editing included grammar, spelling, and sentence structure.

The category of love, stemming from private and personal spheres, was given a public function and used to distinguish European civilisation from others. Contributors to this volume trace historical links and analyse specific connections between the two discourses on love and Europe... read more
During the last two decades Europe has experienced a rise in transnational contention. Citizens are crossing borders to advance alternative visions of Europe. They spread protest concepts and tactics and explore new ways of organizing dissent. Far from being a recent phenomenon, transnational protest is obviously more salient in a world of international corporations and global political intera... read more
The Holy Roman Empire has often been anachronistically assumed to have been defunct long before it was actually dissolved at the beginning of the nineteenth century. The authors of this volume reconsider the significance of the Empire in the sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth centuries. Their research reveals the continual importance of the Empire as a stage (and audience) for symbolic per... read more
The protest movements that followed the Second World War have recently become the object of study for various disciplines; however, the exchange of ideas between research fields, and comparative research in general, is lacking. An international and interdisciplinary dialogue is vital to not only describe the similarities and differences between the single national movements but also to evaluat... read more

The growing debate over British national identity, and the place of "Englishness" within it, raises crucial questions about multiculturalism, postimperial culture and identity, and the past and future histories of globalization. However, discussions of Englishness have too often been limited by insular conceptions of national literature, culture, and history, which serve to erase or marginaliz... read more
