Paul's work is always first class. His attention to detail is excellent, and he can always be relied upon to stick to strict deadlines and still deliver work to a high standard.

Carl Saxton, Senior Editor (Science), Cambridge University Press

Paul provides an excellent copy editing and proofreading service. He is very flexible and able to accommodate shifting deadlines and last minute requests, but still maintaining a very high quality of work.

Beth Elam, Editorial Project Manager at the Nucleus Group

I have had the privilege of working with Paul on different projects in the past year. He is a highly skilled editor with a very keen eye for consistency and he delivered with fast turnaround times. I would work with him again without question. It was also good to learn a few new editorial skills.

Tim Stentiford, Regional Editorial Lead/Chief Medical Writer at MediTech Media

I've worked with many editors and copy editors in the past, and Paul is one of the best in his field, no doubt. Not only did Paul catch errors in my manuscript that I never noticed (and I went over that thing very, very, very carefully numerous times), but he also asked for clarification regarding passages in my manuscript that got me to think, 'This guy can follow fairly dense and technical stuff that's not familiar to him.' Further, the manner in which he presented questions in a spreadsheet-like form, as well as his prompt responsiveness via email, indicated to me that he's a well-organized person.
