I am a qualified freelance copy-editor and proofreader. After living in London for more than forty years and balancing freelance editorial work with other employment, I moved to the south of Italy in 2017 and became a full-time copy-editor and proofreader. It’s definitely warmer over here!
I trained with The Publishing Training Centre (PTC) and the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP). I have worked on a wide range of fiction and non-fiction, and I work with publishers, literary agencies and self-published authors.
My experience includes copy-editing / proofreading titles in the following fields:
- Historical fiction
- Military history
- Science fiction
- Young Adult
My interest in language stems from my Italian background and I studied French and German to degree level, spending a year in Germany as an English Language Assistant. I have also taught English as a Foreign Language to both young and adult students.
I am an Intermediate Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders and follow their Code of practice.
