About me:  I have been working in publishing since 1984 and have been kept busy as a freelance editor since 1994.
I was trained and worked in-house for three different publishers in and around London before moving to North Yorkshire and starting my freelance career. Over the past twenty years I have worked with many different publishers and non-publishers and established excellent relationships with in-house editors who know they can rely on me to meet the requirements of the job and – especially – to meet the deadline.

In addition to working on different types of books and educational resources I proofread reports (such as for housing and market research organisations) and have checked websites. I am passionate about accuracy and clarity in all types of communication.

As an Advanced Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders I regularly attend SfEP Conferences and training sessions to keep up to date with the latest developments.

I am a freelance editor and proofreader, working in publishing since 1984: first in-house and since 1994 as a freelance. I specialise in educational and non-fiction materials, especially FE and vocational titles, covering subject areas from business studies, law and construction to health and social care, beauty therapy, housing reports, cookery books and yoga. Variety is the spice of life!
