Sympathetic but thorough editing and proofreading


Editing and proofreading of any kind of document from non-fiction books, websites, newsletters and magazines to novels and biographies. I am a flexible and friendly editor, and always try to combine sensitivity to your style with the rigour of an editor’s eye.

I offer a range of services tailored to your exact requirements:

  • Proofreading to correct spelling, punctuation and grammatical errors and to check layout
  • Light editing to ensure consistency of style and fluency throughout
  • More substantial editing to improve style where necessary
  • Development editing looking at plot, characters, tone and pace
  • Editing of non-native English
  • Continuity and plot checking
  • Formatting to achieve a consistent layout
  • Helping with tables of contents and other document preparation

I am an Advanced Professional Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders with more than 12 years' editing experience. Here is what some of my customers have said about working with me.

I am an editor and proofreader with many years' experience on a wide range of projects, from copy-editing non-fiction books for traditional publishers to helping both non-fiction and fiction authors prepare their work for submission to agents or publishers or for self-publishing. I also work with blog writers and online content.

I am very flexible in my approach, and will work with you in the way that suits you best, intervening as much (or as little) as you like. While I will always correct spelling, grammatical and punctuation errors, I adapt my editing to your requirements. My aim is that your writing should be correct and appropriate to your task, but still speak with your voice.

So whether you just want a final eye cast over your completed work to check for typos, or help in licking your novel into shape before you send it out into the world, or any other assistance with your written communication – just let me know what I can do for you!
