I successfully completed proofreading, copyediting and/or indexing tests for many of these publishers. I have worked on a wide variety of educational, fiction and adult non-fiction books, in both UK and US English. The numerous genres I have completed work in include aviation, biography, crime, fiction, film, history, military history, motoring, music, sci-fi and sport.
In addition to working for many traditional and academic publishers, I have also completed numerous assignments for authors publishing independently. To have gained non-stop freelance work in a highly competitive market over such a sustained period of time shows that I have a keen eye and am meticulous in my work, as well as having the ability to meet tight deadlines. During my time working in the profession, I have never once failed to complete an assignment, and I have often received positive feedback from authors and editors, many of whom I have gone on to develop long-standing working relationships with.
Residing in Bispham, Blackpool with my wife Kathryn, in my spare time I am a keen walker and an avid enthusiast of art, film, history, literature and music. It's also my long-held dream to one day achieve the same ambition as many of the writers I'm fortunate enough to work with and become a published author.
