General non-fiction (special interest in archaeology, Egyptology, history, art, mythology) and educational books and resources


I am used to working on a very wide variety of non-fiction texts. I have edited and managed projects ranging from children's books to exhibition catalogues and scholarly monographs. I am experienced in dealing sensitively and constructively with authors who may be unused to writing for a particular audience, or for whom English is a second or third language.
