Do you want a well presented, grammatically correct document that stands out from the crowd? I will check all written and online material and get rid of all those mistakes and inconsistencies which spoil a professional piece of work and are so annoying to readers. I welcome text of any length, regular contract work or one-off projects.

I can work on hard copy, on disk or by email.

I also offer:

  • secretarial services
  • CV writing
  • indexing
  • permission seeking - I worked on a book where I had to seek over 100 permissions.


I've worked on a wide variety of texts, including children's and adult fiction, non-fiction, financial journals and magazines, and company literature for a wide variety of clients, including mainstream publishers, non-publishers, design companies, individual authors, students and lecturers.

My work for students and lecturers has included theses and dissertations on a wide range of topics including social welfare, environmental studies, media studies, political history, humanities and international relations. I offer a 10% discount to students.

I’ve been a member of the SfEP since 2004 and am currently a Moderator of the SfEP online forums.
