Overview

I am a freelance editor/publisher of quality books by independent authors. I started my writing career some 40 years ago by editing my university newspaper and student handbook. After university I joined a Christian monthly and went on from there. I was, for many years, a member of the Chartered Institute of Journalists. I am now semi-retired and work with a small number of self-published authors as an editor and also publish some other books under my own efforts.
