If you are a trade publisher, or specialise in academic, educational or reference publishing, and are looking for a freelancer to edit, copyedit or proofread for you, please do get in touch. Whether you produce print or e-books, or interactive websites, I can help you. I have worked on a wide variety of books and websites over more than twenty years, and am also an experienced project manager (editorial stages), having worked in-house as Managing Editor at Canongate, as well as project-managing titles and series at Chambers Harrap and the National Library of Scotland. I am an Advanced Professional member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP, formerly the SfEP) and do regular training through them to keep my skills sharp and learn new ones.

There is a short list of recent projects I’ve worked on with my About me page, where you can find out more about whether I would be a good fit for you.
