In June 2018, I began proofreading for fellow authors. I received such good feedback and enjoyed the work so much that I decided to do it professionally. Hence I created Folla Fiction Publishing in November 2018. My website shows the work I provide and the reviews I have received so far. I am currently working on getting official accreditation as a proofreader through the society for proofreaders and editors, aiming to become a copy-editor in the long run.
I began writing novels in August 2015. As English isn't my first language (although I've always been surrounded by English as I grew up in The Netherlands and lived in Australia for thirteen years [2000-2013]), I had to re-educate myself in the English grammar and prose.
I did the usual thing an office manager does, including being the manager's assistant, being in charge of employees time sheets, petty cash, the stationery cupboard, and filing, as well as organizing staff meetings, accommodation, and employee interviews.
After receiving my graduate degree as a Science Teacher, I was a relief teacher at various high schools south of Perth, Western Australia.
I was Secretary for the local residents' association for three years, gathering agenda items, distributing meeting agendas, taking notes during meetings, and distributing meeting notes.
I worked as a veterinarian for David Clare Vets, having surgeries in three different locations and doing
Not sure of the dates anymore (as it was such a long time ago), but I wrote veterinary articles on exotic animals for the student magazine for a couple of years.
During my studies and after, I have worked as a legal audio-typist in The Netherlands as well as a medical secretary, receptionist, and audio-typist for various hospitals, in The Netherlands and Australia.
