I am a trained editor and proofreader, based in Shropshire, helping writers to communicate their messages clearly and with maximum impact. Errors in our writing undermine our credibility with our readers making it less likely that they will absorb our message and take the action we want them to. I can help you to get the most out of your words.

From a first book for children, to an academic’s research paper or a charity’s worldwide call to action, I can help you present your words effectively to foster your audience’s trust and engagement. When you have written something that really matters, I can provide a trained eye and final polish before you send it into the world to do its work.

I work with most subjects and project types but I offer a specialist service for natural history, wildlife and ecology following a 24-year career as a project ecologist.

Whatever you need, if you think I can help, or you would like a chat about your project, please get in touch.
