Overview

With a background in English tuition and copywriting, I started freelancing in 2012, concentrating on writing and editing in fiction, screenwriting and for businesses and academia. I offer copy-editing services with fully tracked changes and explanations where necessary. As an author of English learning materials, and a tutor of Advanced English and writing, I am a firm believer that being able to explain why something needs changing (and how improvements can be made) is as important as being able to spot areas for improvement. For this reason I like to create a working dialogue with my clients.

My specialist interests include contemporary fantasy, sci-fi and adventure, though as a freelancer I have worked across projects as varied as article writing, academic books, business plans, white papers and proposals, marketing material, website content and more.
