I am an accomplished content developer, editor, and project manager with substantial experience in print and digital publishing. Since 1996 I've worked in-house and freelance in authoring, editorial, production, content development, and team management roles for publishing companies and academic institutions.
My production knowledge includes: print (including four colour), digital, online, video, audio, SEO, and apps. I have over a decade of experience managing and training professionals for a renowned global publishing 'how to' brand (For Dummies), and led the UK content management team for a global travel brand (Frommer's), and I hold a PRINCE2 Foundation project management qualification.
In addition to helping many other writers create their published works, I have authored several books of my own on history and legends, and worked as an archaeologist and volunteer museum archivist earlier in my career.
