“I offer a full service editorial service for fiction and non-fiction work. My background doesn’t include poetry or children’s books, so if that is your need, then I can’t help.”
“I specialise in continuity checking, science advice and proofreading, but will also copyedit and suggest substantive changes. I also use computer-based tools to assist with my proofreading (which is reflected in my costs) and so prefer to work in the digital format.”
Specialties: science, medical ethics, medical history, social justice, music, environment, internet, writing. Full CV available on Linkedin.
