Owen's copyediting of our manuscript was thorough without being invasive. His edits were undertaken promptly, and we quickly developed a pattern for working across different time zones. Owen is a clear and receptive communicator, in both email correspondence and in-text suggestions. He quickly accommodated the historic terms particular to our topic and focused his corrections on errors rather than intervening in the cadence of our writing. His attention to detail demonstrated a real care for our book. I have no reservation in recommending him as a copyeditor. Indeed, I hope to work with him again in the future myself.
