Profile

I provide editorial services for nonfiction publications, business communications, marketing copy, short stories and novels. My most common methods of mark-up are with Acrobat and Word; I offer structural, line and copy editing, content writing, manuscript evaluation, proofreading and localisation. Other services include fact-checking, project managing, consulting, image research and advisement for self-publishing. My philosophy and style of editing is to help bring content to life by making seamless adjustments that let the author’s voice and vision shine through.
