I'm a copy-editor and proofreader with 15 years' experience editing novels, history books, children's books, religious books, romantic fiction and computing titles. Publishers I've worked with include Pen & Sword, Helion & Company, Packt Publishing, IT Governance Publishing, Wilkinson House, Boxer Books and Liquid Silver Books.
I love collaborating with authors to get books in the best shape they can be, and the challenge of retaining their writing style and voice; I always try to offer suggestions and comments rather than simply making sweeping changes with no explanation. I've got a keen eye for a typo and a knack for ensuring consistency in style and tone.
