I am a professional freelance proofreader, copy-editor, ghostwriter and copywriter with vast experience of working on student essays/dissertations, academic papers, business documents, and both fiction and non-fiction books.
I am fully skilled in BSI proofreading marks and am able to proofread both hard and electronic copy, using Word Track Changes, Adobe Reader and Foxit Reader if necessary.
I hold a Professional Membership of the Chartered Institute of Editors and Proofreaders (CIEP) and have professional qualifications in both copy-editing and proofreading, via the CIEP and the Editorial Training group respectively.
I offer proofreading, copy-editing and developmental editing services to:
* Students requiring fluent and consistent English in their essays and other assignments. I work for ESL (English as a Second Language) students as well as students whose written English is affected by a disability, i.e. dyslexia.
* Businesses producing brochures, reports, marketing materials, internal company documents or web copy.
* Independent authors going down the self-publishing route. I am also able to assist authors with ghostwriting.
* Publishers – my major UK publishing clients include Edinburgh University Press, Omnibus Press, Pan Macmillan, Taylor & Francis and Routledge.

I have an extremely strong eye for detail and am skilled at spotting the smallest and subtlest of errors, ensuring content is consistent and coherent, and that documents and publications appear as professional and error-free as possible. I am also highly adept at raising queries where necessary to ensure the text is presented as close to the author’s intentions as possible. I will make notes where the writing is unclear, so it may be rewritten. I am dedicated towards ensuring my clients’ needs are met to their best possible satisfaction and enabling their work to achieve the strongest possible effect.
My specialist subject areas include:
Ancient History and Archaeology
Culture and Media Studies
Gender and Media
Gothic Horror Literature & Cinema
Megalithic Monuments and Sites
