Additional information

I spent over 30 years working for the Northern Ireland Housing Executive. Much of that time was spent writing and editing reports, strategy documents and policy papers. When I left, I retrained with SfEP/CIEP and started editing and proofreading on freelance platforms such as Upwork.

I work extensively with independent authors on their books, as well as with companies and individuals on their websites and blogs.
