Why I’m good at what I do…

I am a freelance proofreader who loves writing, language and I have an eye for detail. I have a passion for the written word and as a published author, I continue to be surprised at the number of errors in published material. Being freelance gives me the opportunity to work with a wide variety of clients meaning that I experience a lot of different aspects of proofreading. I can help you to make sure that your publications are in tip-top condition before you publish them. Recently published Confident Business Writing - a 7-step plan to help you overcome your business writing challenges.

I am affiliated to the UK’s top industry-recognised professional organisations. I have trained with the Publishing Training Centre and I am an Associate of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders.

Much of my work these days involves on-screen proofreading using Track Changes in MS Word. I am also proficient with the British Standard Proofreading Symbols (2005), marking up hard copies either to a proof copy or blind.

I will be happy to discuss your preferred requirements, so give me a call or email me.
