I'm an experienced editor, writer and proofreader of non-fiction and fiction. I have worked with prestigious publishing houses like Dorling Kindersley as well as individual authors.
I have been a freelance editor, writer and proofreader since 2010. In that time I have become an official writer for Dorling Kindersley's Marvel and DC Comics publications, and have also provided proofreading services for the same department. I have also been copyeditor for a wide variety of magazines, including soccer magazine FourFourTwo, Chat, Take a Break, The Marvel Movie Collection, and the DC Chess Collection.
For two years I was the editor of a daily newsletter for business software multinational SAP. This involved gathering news stories about the company from around the world, and rendering them all into good English that could be read by a global audience.
I have also proofread modern fiction novels.
As an editor at a company that provided packaging services for various publishers, my most important project was World War II Eyewitness Experience. This was a high-quality magazine produced for prestigious UK newspaper The Daily Telegraph. My responsibilities included commissioning expert writers and consultants, fact-checking, proofreading, and also researching and writing one section of the magazine.
I was involved from the launch stage with Hothouse, a developer of fiction series for children. New ideas were brainstormed before being developed into concepts and taken to market research, with the aim of selling them to major publishers.
I worked on many projects, diverse in both subject and format, during my time at Planet Three. I was the editor of The Catherine Cookson Collection for the entirety of its 100-issue run. I proofread 100 new editions of Cookson's work, as well as originating and commissioning feature ideas for the accompanying magazine. I edited and proofread the magazine before it went to print.
