Overview

I have 13 plus years experience in publishing across a number of sectors and subject areas. In recent years I have focused on educational publishing but I can turn my hand to most things. I have worked in many different areas from A Level Science and History to ELT and even knitting books! I have a keen eye for detail and love working with authors to get their material just right.

My clients have included: Bloomsbury, CUP, D&C, OUP and Pearson Education.

Before becoming freelance I worked in-house for a number of publishers including Pearson Education, Hodder Education and John Wiley.
