Welcome to my website

I’m a teacher, an editor, an author, a presenter, a writer and an artist. Please see my CV, list of projects and testimonials.

I offer an array of services:

Editorial Training Services: I regularly teach short courses in grammar and editing. I strive to make my courses entertaining and interactive, and evaluations of them are overwhelmingly positive.

I also offer one-on-one tuition and deliver presentations to writers’ and editors’ groups.

Living Proof – Book Editing: I’ve been a self-employed editor since 1989, and my services include copy editing, structural editing, preparing editorial reviews, rewriting, converting text to plain English, and proofreading.

I collaborate with a range of companies, government departments, business entities and self-publishing authors in order to produce the best-possible product. Whatever the project, my imperative is editorial excellence.

Writing and copy writing: I apply my wordsmithing skills to many types of publication. Clients have included Government News, Newswrite, Vegan Voice and Concise Writing Consultancy.

I’m the author of Grey Areas and Gremlins: A grammar and punctuation refresher. The cost of the printed book and its 10 accompanying handouts is $60 (no GST), including shipping within Australia, and the cost of the PDF version and handouts is $35. View and order HERE.

Draw On: I’m a long-time working artist who creates black and white line drawings and cartoons as well as colourful illustrations and posters. View and order my ‘Give pigs a chance’ poster HERE.

A collection of my artwork, articles, ephemera and music products is housed at the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences (the Powerhouse Museum), in Sydney. View HERE.
