With an MA degree in Linguistics and Literature and being a fluent speaker of several foreign languages, I am passionate and confident in my interaction with words. Whether fiction or non-fiction, business or commercial, I feel them, sense them and know not only what they mean but what they imply.

My first novel was published in 2010 and my short story in 2012. I am currently writing my third book.
I enjoy with a passion the challenge to polish a text as one would a rough diamond. The result must be nothing less than exquisite.
I specialise in making texts more digestable, streamlined and easier to understand. Whether you have written a novel, essay, thesis, article, brochure, booklet or text for your website, I proofread it, cut through the clutter and edit it to ensure it flows the way you intended. I work hard to make complex language more accessible, get your readers' attention and maintain it.
Sentences which are too long are shortened, weak phrases replaced with strong but simple words and what is not relevant is deleted. You can rest assured of a tight, polished product of the highest quality.
I have been writing fiction and tutoring privately for the last 10 years. I have well developed language skills, know the rules of grammar, spelling is my forté and timelines are no problem.
I don’t just proofread and edit. I strive to build genuine relationships with my clients. I serve my clients with meticulous attention and a disciplined thought process. As part of every writing project, I work to grasp the complexities and challenges of my clients' businesses and craft written material that supports their goals.
I know what it takes. The results speak for themselves.
