Work Experience Summary: Passionate about words and language, I escaped a career in insurance auditing to follow my freelance dream. While studying my craft, the editor's job at CEM fell into my capable lap, and five years later I was ready to fly solo. I'm great at polishing copy, taking Occam's razor to it when needed. I've worked with private clients on everything from academic essays and novels, to self-help guides and tree-climbing manuals! And, of course, there are the big publishers - whether it's serious research (Ashgate, Edward Elgar, Herts Uni Press), light-hearted fiction (Book Guild, MPS, Totally Bound) or student course materials/submissions (CEM, ifs School of Finance, Oxford Language Editing) I get the style right and follow the brief. If my client's happy, I'm happy!

Produced the document in the format I wanted although was slightly late in delivering this
The original brief did not indicate the full extent of the work required. Several problems with the corrupted formatting of the original were not mentioned in the brief, and they took a little time (hours, not days) to put right. The client has yet to verify the payment for this job.
