Service Description

I have written several manuscripts and am an experienced novelist. My style is adjusted to each piece of work so that every one has its own voice. My focus tends to be on characters rather than events, making even supernatural creatures sympathetic to the reader. One manuscript, Victorian Gothic, is in the editing stage of pre-publication.

I have done a lot of freelance work on revising academic papers for non-native English speakers in Denmark. These can range from e-mailed inquiries to full publications, and I have had many repeat customers.

I have also been the assistant editor for two literary magazines, assisting in the selection and layout of art and creative writing. Additionally, I self-published a small chap book, which involved a large amount of work with art in Adobe InDesign. These skills are invaluable for customers who need editing work or a sophisticated presentation of their work.

In terms of academic writing, my talents in creative writing give my academic work an extra dimension and at university I usually received the top marks in my class. My research is always very thorough, exploring all sides of an argument, and I am not afraid to be critical of my sources.

I am a prompt worker and used to working within deadlines. My schedule is also flexible and can be adjusted to suit the needs of the client. When writing, I prefer to have enough time to submit a first draft, so that I can make any desired changes before the final deadline and satisfy...
