Thank you for visiting my website. It contains information about all the editorial services that I offer along with details of my qualifications and experience.

I have worked in publishing since graduating in 1984 and have a long list of happy customers. I enjoy working in partnership with publishers and other organisations, ensuring that texts are brought up to the best possible standard. I also absolutely love working with authors, making sure that their treasured projects come to fruition as smoothly and efficiently as possible. I am constantly updating my skills and to this end gained an MA in English from Kent University in 2017 and continue to improve my knowledge of French via my local adult education service.
