I have been working in the publishing industry, for major book publishers, since 1987. I worked for a large publisher for nearly 18 years, first as a proofreader, then as a copy editor. At the same time, I have been freelance copy editing since 2000, working on fiction and non-fiction. Have worked on books for independent authors, have done speech writing, worked on newsletters for non-profit organizations.
Worked on contract as a production coordinator for a well-known education publisher, guiding several books through the stages through to publication.
