There are hundreds of us about, so why choose me?

I like to say I was born with a pen in my hand. It’s nearly true. I was brought up bilingual and the conversation in my house when I was a child came back to words so often that we kept a dictionary on the dining table for reference during mealtime arguments.

I’m the author of 13 non-fiction books, for children and adults, and I learnt editing and proofreading the hard way: reading the proofs of my own books.

Since then, I have worked on books, papers and articles too many to count, for clients all over the world too many to mention.

I have also:

  • given support in literacy, including teaching English grammar and usage, to students at further education colleges
  • taught editing to graduates on a Professional Diploma in Publishing course
  • devised, led and taught the only Editing and Proofreading course at a further education college in the UK
  • taught trainee teachers in the final year of their course, setting and marking their written assignments.

I am:

  • a remote editor for www.scribendi.com, a Canadian-based editing and proofreading service.
  • painstaking and conscientious and always give of my best, as my clients’ testimonials will verify.
  • also very good at the job.
