I'm an experienced editor and proofreader, and work on books and other documents on a freelance basis for publishing houses, organisations and individuals.
I was the editor of Organic NZ magazine from 2008 to 2021. Organic NZ is the magazine of the Soil & Health Association of New Zealand (established 1941), and is Aotearoa’s only magazine dedicated entirely to organics. It covers everything from gardening and farming, to food, recipes, natural health, consumer issues, sustainable living and eco building.
In 1995 I completed a Certificate in Publishing at Whitireia Polytechnic; the course covered all aspects of publishing, including editing. Then I worked for six years at the Otago University Press as the publicist, and began freelance editing in 2004. I love languages and have studied German, French, Japanese and Māori, which has proved useful in my editing work.
My editing services include:
- editing, copy-editing, proofreading and indexing books, theses, websites and other documents;
- reading and assessing manuscripts.
