I have worked on a fairly wide range of non-fiction subject matter, including archaeology, Egyptology, engineering, law, sociology, education, criminology, economics, military history, culture, coaching and self-help. I have also proofread fiction.

Types of material I have worked on include academic dissertations, papers and monographs, articles, procedures manuals, annual reports, business brochures, catalogues, books, e-books, websites, newsletters, booklets, book proposals and blogs.

I specialise in archaeological material, and in academic papers and monographs.

I work in English, mostly Australian English or British English, but I have worked on American English too.

Here is a selection of the projects I have worked on. Sometimes I do more than one type of work on a project.
