I have a forensic level of spotting errors in copy, whether these are typos, spelling, literals, syntax or grammar use, or whether copy strays from a particular house style.
I have more than 10 years of experience in B2B, B2C, consumer, trade, customer and contract publications. My skills encompass editing; sub-editing, copywriting; proofreading. If you want perfect writing, I'll do it for you.
I am very good at creating snappy headlines, sells and engaging a target readership.
In-between crusading to put the poor abused apostrophe in its (rightful) place, I have edited a novel and written two of my own (yet to be published) so can get involved in book writing/ghost writing as well!
