My work is all about attention to detail, of course, but also sensitivity to the material: this is enhanced by a wealth of life experience; a vast breadth of reading; and knowledge of French, Spanish and Latin, plus a smattering of Greek. Facts are checked, of course, even for fiction (if something looks wrong or unlikely, it can make your plot unconvincing, or just snag the reader's concentration), and I will send you a detailed list of queries and comments. You are more than welcome to question anything I've said or suggested, and no change will be pushed on you; if it's easier, we can also talk via phone or video chat.
Flawless spelling, punctuation and grammar guaranteed (but idiosyncrasies respected!).
