I work mostly on general academic, history, memoirs and archaeological books, and I am happy to consider other subject areas and types of books, including cookery. Editors, authors and providers of publishing services are among my clients, as well as traditional publishers. I studied archaeology at undergraduate and post-graduate levels, worked as an archaeological project manager and finds supervisor, and attained the Associate grade (AIFA) membership of the Institute for Archaeologists. I have also worked in the areas of domestic energy efficiency policy and testing and trialling consumer products for Which? magazine. I have been a church bell ringer for over 30 years.
I am available all year, including over the summer and other school holidays.
