If you can tell stories, create characters, devise incidents and have sincerity and passion,

it doesn’t matter a damn how you write - Somerset Maugham

You may be writing your first book or you may already be a published author. Whatever the case, I understand how important your book is to you.

I proofread and copy edit the manuscript to ensure that grammar, spelling and punctuation are correct, and there is consistency in style and continuity - in other words, it is a pleasure to read. Much of this detail can easily be overlooked when writing, even by the most experienced of authors.

I work closely with you, offering constructive support and advice as well as technical expertise.



An academic dissertation or thesis is the result of many months, sometimes years, of dedicated research, fieldwork and writing.

The quality of its presentation will help to determine its success.

I provide fast, personal, cost-effective proofreading and copy editing to ensure that your work is presented to the highest standard.

With many of my clients their first language is not English - I work with clients of all nationalities, worldwide.
