I've been a freelance science editor for nine years and have worked with large and small publishers. Since moving into fiction-writing and editing, I have drawn on my scientific background to give science fiction and speculative fiction that authentic edge.

I also edit academic papers, books and articles in a wide range of disciplines and specialise in helping those for whom English is a second language (ESL).
