I've worked at many of the major publishers in London, up to a very senior level, throughout my 20+ year career. For many years I ran training for freelance copyeditors and proofreaders. Now I take on freelance editorial work myself for a wide range of clients – from educational textbooks, through self-published romance novels, to music journalism. Outside of this day job, I'm a mum of two and I play in a rock band.
