Proofreader and copy-editor for authors, academics and businesses in Plymouth

How can I help you?

I offer bespoke proofreading and editing services for independent authors, academics and businesses. I also offer an early manuscript review (beta reading) service for independent authors. I have edited in UK and US English, and worked with people whose first language is not English. I'm here to ensure your novel, article or dissertation is correct, concise and conveys the message you want it to.

Contact me today and I'd be delighted to offer you a sample edit so that you can evaluate my services with a real example.

Since July 2019, I've proofread, copy-edited, line edited and beta read novels and novellas in the YA, MG, fantasy, romance, action-adventure and thriller genres. I am happy to work on other genres, but I'm more familiar with the above.

Before retraining as a proofreader and editor, I worked in the architectural design industry for twelve years. I have a Bachelor of Science in interior design, so when it comes to proofreading academic or business texts, I specialise in architecture and design-related disciplines, but I'm also comfortable with humanities and social sciences.

What are my editing qualifications?

- Intermediate Member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP)
- Proofreading 1 (CIEP)
- Proofreading theses and dissertations (CIEP)
- Proofreading and copy-editing (The Writers Bureau)
