I provide publishers, packagers, businesses and authors with careful, timely proofreading. I have seven years in-house experience in publishing: I worked on academic journals at the Royal Chemistry Society and 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 books in the humanities, 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.
