The non-fiction books I have worked on range from biography/autobiography and memoir to popular history, adventure, and mind body spirit. In fiction I have worked across a range of genres including chick lit, thrillers and literary fiction. I also have extensive experience of the new area of proofreading e-books.
I also work on web content, marketing/advertising and business materials for charities, arts organisations and IT firms.
I worked in the editorial department of Hodder & Stoughton before going freelance and Hodder are now a major client of mine, along with John Murray, Macmillan. Findhorn, Daunt Books, Random House, Constable & Robinson and others.
I work on anything from structural edits/rewrites, through copy-edits, to proofreading and collation.
I am happy to take on last-minute and/or urgent work and am highly reliable, fast and accomplished.
Area Covered: I live in London but if work is sent and to be returned digitally, obviously I can take on work from anywhere.
