Coachhouse Business Services
I am a professionally qualified editor and proofreader, working freelance since 2017, following early retirement as Head of Internal Audit in local government. Since then, I have worked for publishers, independent authors and businesses from around the world. I am a Professional member of the Chartered Institute of Editors & Proofreaders (CIEP).
My previous career also provided a wealth of experience within local government finance, internal auditing, risk management and corporate governance – editing and proofreading so many internal audit reports over 20 years that I’ve lost count!
I really love what I do and can offer a bespoke service to meet your needs, including copy-editing, proof-editing, proofreading, document design and objective reviews. I now mostly work on books (fiction and non-fiction), but also cover academic papers, articles, websites and business documents. I am able to adapt my skills and knowledge to suit anything you need editing or proofreading and have often worked with non-native English speakers.
All of my customers have provided excellent feedback on the quality, clarity and added value of my work. I have also been awarded ‘difficult’ projects due to my thoroughness and eye for detail. I pride myself on doing an excellent job, my reliability and meeting tight deadlines.
