I'm a specialist fiction authors' proofreader and copyeditor. I work with self-publishing writers to bring clarity and consistency to their books. I’ll help tighten and smooth your manuscript at sentence level while implementing standard grammar, punctuation and spelling. All the while, I'll respect your voice, the world you've built and the characters who live within it. I have over twenty-five years of professional publishing experience. I worked for two major international publishing houses before turning freelance in 2006. Since then, I've completed over 500 proofreading and copyediting projects – from fiction and commercial non-fiction books to texts in the social sciences and humanities. I welcome the opportunity to work with both beginning and mature writers.
