Services for publishers


I have sixteen years of continuous editing and proofreading experience.

I work on

• educational textbooks and other resources
• academic books, including multi-author volumes
• general non-fiction, including illustrated books.

I am experienced in using Word's editing tools, including templates and styles. I will happily proofread on paper or PDF.

I have worked on over 200 titles, many of them for educational publishers such as Hodder Education and HarperCollins.

For academic publishers I often handle projects fom copy-editing to final proofs. I have extensive experience of liaising with authors.

I enjoy working on non-fiction, including illustrated books, on a variety of subjects. Clients include Thames & Hudson and Birlinn.

I have expertise in working on MBA materials for higher education institutions.

I am willing to tackle most non-science subjects. My areas of interest include

• education (textbooks, study guides and resource materials on social subjects, vocational subjects, English and art & design)
• history (ancient, medieval, modern)
• archaeology
• literature (classics, English, Semitic languages)
• management and business
• general non-fiction, including Scottish interest, local history, merchant and maritime history, humour, travel, general knowledge.
