I have more than 20 years experience in magazines as a sub editor, researcher and writer. After leaving the Week's staff I freelanced there and at Bonham's Magazine. Recently I have done audio transcription for Castiron Radio and an oral history project about London's Inner Temple, and proofread PhD theses and memoirs. I also set up a proofreading and editing service with two friends (ex-colleagues from Time and The Week). Visit our website at flmpartners.net, or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have also written three novels and several non-fiction books.
