I pay attention to the music and rhythms of language even in the driest of subjects -- choppy sentences and awkward word choices disrupt flow whether you're reading something out loud or in the quiet space of your mind.
No outsourcing, and no plundering of other people's work. Plagiarism is theft, plain and simple. My work is original and I take pride in maintaining a high standard.

Covered by PI and PL Insurance - worldwide coverage / US and EU jurisdictions. Member of the Society of Authors.
I specialise in articles and features, creative writing and developmental editing of full-length manuscripts.
Areas of particular interest and professional experience include health and wellness, surgery, anatomy & physiology, environment, green living, veganism and vegetarianism, politics, current affairs, humour and satire, cinema and theatre, literature, history and travel.
I have very little experience in technology / IT / auto / corporate finance, and I prefer not to work on these projects unless there's a large dose of non-specialist humour required.
My background is in surgical operative procedures, operating theatre management and tuition, followed by an Honours degree in English literature as a mature student. I also have a grounding in psychology and counselling and take an active interest in national and international politics. My literary fiction has been broadcast on BBC radio and published in the UK, the Republic of Ireland, France, Germany, Belgium, Japan and Australasia.
I'm a "toothbrush and passport" kind of traveller and have lived and worked in Switzerland and Portugal as well as globetrotting by plane and train - life is for the living and I'm not done yet. My work and life experience give me an extensive memory bank of ideas, knowledge and know-how and a firm confidence in my skill and creativity. I'm good at what I do.
