I have been freelance for over 30 years (having worked in industry for several years before that) and I have written over 24 published cookery books on a variety of subjects. Although I am originally a food writer, much of my time now is spent working as a copy editor or proofreader on a wide range of cookery/food books written by other authors. I have worked with many different food writers, chefs, bloggers and publishers over the years, and my background in writing helps enormously with my editorial work. As well as cookery/food titles, I also work on recipe-led health, diet and nutrition books, plus copyediting work on website recipes. Additionally, I do ebook checking (and proofreading - either on hard copy or digitally) on all non-fiction titles (including cookery/food, health and other home/lifestyle titles, such as arts and crafts, gardening, narrative, etc). I am very organised, competent, thorough, meticulous, clear and sensitive in my work, as well as being reliable, flexible and used to working to tight deadlines.
For copyediting and proofreading work, I am able to work on UK or combined UK/US cookery/food titles, and my expertise covers any subject within the numerous categories of cookery and food. I currently copyedit on screen in Word documents, and I proofread either on hard copy or digitally.
