Favorite referencing style

I am the most familiar with APA referencing, but I’m keen to gain more experience with other styles.

Why I became an editor

I thoroughly enjoyed teaching ESOL and helping my advanced students to develop their English writing skills for university success. This work led to helping native speakers with self-help guides, local history booklets, and novels.

Background and experience

Following my editing and proofreading training with the New Zealand Business Academy, I did a variety of editing and proofreading work, much of which was substantive editing for clients writing their first novels. I also proofread university art theses and edited for self-published authors of factual booklets, such as self-help guides and local histories. In 2015, I edited a 260-page biography published by PenPublishing.

Why I love proofreading and editing

Proofreading documents is always an interesting challenge, and learning about the wide range of topics that the documents cover is a bonus!

Favorite book:

I like science books for lay readers on subjects such as astrophysics, quantum physics, human evolution, and history. I recently read Astrophysics for People in a Hurry by Neil deGrasse Tyson.

Hobbies:

I like acrylic painting, gardening, beachcombing, and cooking.

Editing tips:

Checklists are invaluable, especially ones I have constructed to give me editing reminders.
