Experience and training


Would I be a good match for your text?


I work on texts of all kinds, including books, articles, reports and essays. Please don't hesitate to drop me a message, whatever the nature of your text, and I’d be happy to discuss your requirements.


Although it’s not strictly necessary for me to have background knowledge of your text’s subject area to work on it, sometimes it helps! The following are all areas where I have some knowledge, familiarity or experience:

  • Self-published fiction
  • Fiction genres: science fiction, fantasy, speculative fiction, contemporary fiction, historical fiction
  • Non-fiction: archaeology, history, nature, outdoors, landscapes, walking, travel, adventure, mental health and wellbeing
  • Finance
  • Government, politics and society
  • Autism and neurodiversity; adoption and care experience; additional support needs



I have undertaken the following training:

  • Publishing Training Centre: Essential Copy-Editing (ongoing)
  • CIEP The Art of Querying (completed February 2024)
  • CIEP Proofreading 2: Headway (passed with Merit April 2023)
  • CIEP Proofreading 1: Introduction (completed January 2023)
