About me

Self_03 copyI am an Advanced Professional Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP) and I have been working as a freelance book editor and copy-editor for more than 25 years.

For two decades I was also an author at the travel-guide publisher Rough Guides, for whom I wrote guidebooks about Thailand, Indonesia and Southeast Asia.

Having lived and worked abroad – in Japan, Thailand and France – I also specialise in rewriting non-native speakers’ text into fluent English.
