Specialist subjects

I’m happy working on a wide range of subjects for a general readership, but some specialist areas include architecture, art and design, fashion and culture (especially East London and hipsters!)children's reference and cookery. My background is in trade and educational publishing; as well as books I now work in a range of published media. 

For example, I also edit technical articles, specification notes, press releases, blog postscompany websites and inflight magazines. Why not contact me with your requirements, and let's see how I can help?
