About the editor

About me

Work experience

I specialise in producing clear, communicative text that says what you want it to say in language that is simple, meaningful and elegant.

I have edited every kind of text from poetry to journal articles; academic writing is my bread and butter, but I also love corporate work, memoirs, works of theology, blogs, novels, self-help books, training manuals and fledgling authors with first-ever novels. I edit and give constructive criticism, and have never had a dissatisfied customer (that I know of).

Basically, give me any text and I'll improve it.

My rates are reasonable and I am flexible - if I love a project I will bend over backwards for it. I am a member of the Professional Editors' Guild, which ensures that I adhere to high standards and ethical practices. No job is too big or too small. I work fast, love my work and will always go the extra mile to ensure a happy client.

Everyone who writes needs an excellent editor!
