About me: After a career in business journalism, my love of language and clarity in communication sparked my decision to become a freelance editor and proofreader. I trained with the highly regarded Publishing Training Centre and am a professional member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading.
Much of my work is for businesses and organisations, helping to fine-tune important communications, reports and marketing materials. I have also enjoyed working with a number of independent authors on a variety of subjects from divorce to space accounting.
I’m happy to tackle most subjects, and I work both on-screen (in Word or PDF) and with hard copy, using standard BSI proofreading symbols.
