I am a writer, editor and publisher. I specialize in ESL, academic, educational and technical editing, and was previously Senior Editor for Oxford University Press. I can do it all for you, taking your work from manuscript to submitted thesis, or published book. I am an award-winning writer, and have over 25 years of international experience in every aspect of publishing, with a strong emphasis on academic and educational texts. I have extensive experience in working with ESL writers, creating plain-language educational materials, and editing technical conference materials.
You can contact me at this email address.
I can help you if English is not your first language and you need an editor to polish your work; you are an academic who wants to polish your work for submission to an academic journal; or you have a manuscript you want to publish.
Online and distance education
My other specialty is online and distance education. I worked for several years creating and editing online educational materials, and then managing a team that created online materials. I can help you if you write online courses and you need them to be perfectly edited and ensure that they incorporate sound pedagogical principles.
Unusually, I have worked as a writer, editor, typesetter, designer, book production manager and publisher. This means that I can manage every step of the publication process for you. This includes publishing electronically or publishing printed books. Read more about my publishing services and take a look at some of the books I have created here.
Consultation about setting up a web site and promoting yourself with social media
If you need help in putting up a web site or blog, and then promoting it via social media, I can help you. I offer consultation sessions to help you get up and running quickly, and to give you the confidence to continue on your own. Contact me if you want me to tell you my success story, and explain how I can help you with your own.
Let me use my experience and skills to empower you!
My education has included a BA (English and Philosophy), Double First; BA Hons in English, summa cum laude; a Master of English and Media Studies (with distinction); and a Master of Online Education (with distinction).
I am also an expert user of WordPress, Adobe Creative Suite (Dreamweaver, Photoshop and Premiere Pro), HTML, SharePoint and Microsoft Office Suite .
