I am an experienced copy editor and proofreader working with authors, publishers, editorial consultants and business professionals in the UK and worldwide. Most of the book manuscripts I edit are non-fiction on a wide range of subjects and I also work with fiction. As well as books, I proofread/edit academic dissertations and theses for clients worldwide, many of whom do not have English as their first language. I have a particular empathy with such clients as I am a linguist myself and I understand the difficulties faced by those whose native language is structured very differently from English. I am equally comfortable editing in UK or US English and have extensive experience in both.
My clients also include companies and individuals in the private and public sectors. The work I undertake for them includes producing and/or editing coaching and training materials, advertising and PR copy, business proposals, website content and many other types of business documents.
I offer a professional, personal and confidential service, working closely and collaboratively with my clients, offering not only technical expertise but also support and advice throughout and always with regard to the author’s personal style.
Costs and timing are always agreed before I start the work.
I am a member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP) and am qualified with the Chapterhouse Proofreading and Editorial Skills and Better English courses.
