Service Description

I live and work in the North East of England offering freelance writing and research services on an ad hoc basis.

My editorial purpose is to enhance the reader's experience by ensuring that all the material I produce or edit is clearly written and is well presented on the page. I write and edit exclusively in British English in which I have a lifetime of experience to which I add my meticulous attention to detail.

Complementing my writing skills, I have excellent knowledge of British culture, strong research skills and degree level mathematics. I have a strong personal interest in scientific and technical writing and am highly motivated to work in that field where the opportunity arises. I'm also particularly interested in editing non-fiction articles, manuscripts and books. I also have degree level skills in music.
