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.

I"ve just began my relationship with Cassie. I am a novice who needs hand-holding. She has given her professional review of what my story needs before we go to copy edit stage. I'm highly appreciative of her experience, insights and support in my first attempt to self-publish. May I take this opportunity to thank you Cassie. Karen Brady
