Welcome to my website!

I am a qualified and experienced proofreader and copy-editor with an Honours degree in psychology and who trained with the Publishing Training Centre at Book House in London. Most of my work is with publishers and businesses but I also work directly with authors who wish to see their cherished manuscripts published and students who need their dissertation or clinical paper proofread. In fact, anyone who needs text to be checked can be sure of a fast, accurate service.

A professional member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders, I have been working as a freelance since 1997.  I am experienced in proofreading, rewriting and copy-editing.  I specialize in psychology, I.T., company marketing literature, texts written by non-native speakers of English and rewriting for children. Having scribed and read for dyslexic pupils in exam situations, I can also proofread their assignments, dissertations etc.

My experience has also covered educational publications at primary, secondary and degree levels. I have a working knowledge of French and I’m familiar with legal terminology and the Welsh language.

While working for publishers, the academic books I have copy-edited or proofread covered a wide range of topics: from screenwriting to Paganism and from Russian history to eating disorders. Many of these were multi-author volumes in both American and British English. I have also copy-edited books directly from authors, some of which have been published.

Latterly I have been proofreading books upon their conversion from printed matter to eBooks (such as those for Amazon Kindle/Kindle Fire, Android, Kobo and iPad ).  As I have my own Kindles, Kobo and iPad, files can be emailed to me and the work started immediately.
