I attend to the detail and fine-tune your words. As an author, you may not see the wood for the trees. Perhaps you have copy that needs a final check before publication. I will ensure your work is professional and industry-standard, without silencing your voice. Drop me a line using the red 'Contact' button below, and we can have a chat about the services you need.
