I am a skilled copy-editor and proof-reader who completed my training through The Publishing Training Centre at Book House, London, UK. Currently working at the University of Otago, I am now seeking to develop my editorial and proof-reading skills as a career. I am experienced in editing theses for degree students, as well as a 66,000-word children's novel and, more recently, a non-fiction book, both for private clients. My speciality is with grammar, punctuation, vocabulary and overall sentence-structure (as opposed to more technical aspects such as mark-up or design). Originally British but now based in Dunedin, in the South Island of New Zealand.
