Overview

I have over 20 years' experience working with authors and designers in illustrated publishing, on both adult and children's titles.

I've worked on a wide range of subject matter from travel to gardening, and am happy to take on most topics, but can offer specific expertise on Greece and travel in general. I'm also comfortable with popular culture having been Managing Editor of Guinness World Records.

My services include project management, content research and planning, copy editing, writing, proofreading, picture research and layout planning.

I am passionate about good design and intelligent image usage. I’m friendly and supportive as a colleague and enjoy building working relationships whilst also continuing to learn from the experience of others.
