I provide publishers, packagers, businesses and authors with careful, timely proofreading. I have seven years in-house experience in publishing: I worked as a Production Assistant at the Royal Chemistry Society, Production Editor (Journals) at Cambridge University Press, and then on children’s fiction for the LEGO Group.
As a freelancer I’ve worked on range of projects including: academic multi-author and single-author books in the humanities and social sciences; non-fiction, fiction and YA fiction; travel guides; and annual reports/ESG reporting.I also regularly collate proof corrections for academic journal articles.
Born in the UK, I have lived in Denmark and Germany and now live in Spain.
