I offer specialist legal editing services for publishers, law firms, businesses, academics, and students. In addition, I specialize in editing and proofreading social sciences, humanities, and business books, articles and conference papers for academic presses, academics, researchers, students, NGOs, international development agencies and think tanks. Following 20 years of law practice, I have over a decade of editorial experience, during which I have edited or proofread 300 books and journals, 150 conference papers, articles, commentaries, reviews, position papers, book reviews, and research reports, and a number of theses and dissertations.
I have extensive experience of working with authors for whom English is not their first language. My attention to detail is exemplary and I particularly enjoy communicating with authors.
I mentor other editors and proofreaders, both formally, as a member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (UK) mentorship program and as a member of the Editors' Association of Canada Toronto branch's mentorship committee, and informally.
I enjoy talking to groups, be they large or small, about editing, proofreading, and the publishing industry generally.
