I am a trained copyeditor and proofreader, based in Shropshire in the UK. My service is for anyone who needs help with their words, whether it’s improving their clarity and readability, or a pair of expert eyes to make a final check for errors. Errors in our writing undermine our credibility with our readers. I can help you make your words say what you want them to.

I have been awarded Professional Member status by the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading, demonstrating that I meet their exacting standards.

I work with publishers, businesses, charities and writers on all kinds of projects. Whatever help you need with your words, please get in touch for a friendly no-obligation chat about your project.

I offer a specialist service for natural history, wildlife and ecology following a 24-year career as a project ecologist, but I can help with words on your specialist subject too.

These are a few of the books I have worked on recently.
