Experience

I’ve edited and created copy in a variety of in-house and freelance roles in the public, private and third sectors for over two decades and I've been a full-time freelance specialist since 2008.

I trained in proofreading with the Publishing Training Centre, the industry's recognised training provider, and I successfully completed the SfEP's mentoring programme. In recent years I’ve accessed training in a range of skills including fiction editing, blogging and creating content for social media, and I've extended the services I offer selected clients to include social media management, fundraising and research.

My varied professional experience and training has enabled me to work with people of many different backgrounds and outlooks. I've also been writing my own prose, poetry and theatrical scripts, and attending high-quality writers' development programmes, for more than twenty years.

This broad experience equips me to provide each of my clients with the right balance of communication, creativity and efficiency, so that their written resources always emerge from the editorial process in the best possible shape.

Testimonials

Thank you for your very high standard of work, and for all the reports you have proofread so far. They are perfect. I wish everyone was as easy to deal with as you.

Sunny Kundhi, SGS United Kingdom Limited

Thank you for all of your hard work. I have looked at the formatted document and I think it looks fabulous!

Thank you so much for everything you did for me, you've been so helpful and supportive, every step of the way.

Denise S., independent author

It was really helpful to get the summary you sent – it’s excellent – helped me see a structure that I’d not previously recognised, and then to see what else I think is needed, and where.

Donald Findlater, director of research and development, Lucy Faithfull Foundation & Stop it Now! UK and Ireland

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you again. Your great synopsis definitely attracts readers! My book has reached No. 1 and No. 5 in two categories of Free E-book Top 100 today!

Marion R., independent author

Last week, I received the results for the past two assignments: ‘A’ in both of them. Good job with the proofreading. Money well spent.

MBA student (Marketing Communications and International Business Strategy modules)

Thanks for this. This is one of the best pieces I’ve ever had ghost-written for me! You’ve nailed the style first time. You write informatively and convincingly. It’s superb.
