Editor, Books Mostly


I edit a very wide range of books, sometimes co-writing with the author, sometimes, doing the extra research, sometimes even rewriting, The idea is to point out the problems in structure, grammar, syntax, punctuation and spelling so that the writer is involved. But different clients hope for different results of an edit. I very often get involved with the publishing process too and have promoted and even launched some of my clients' books. I have to be very fond of them to do that!

The material has and is varied: architectural, legal history, sociological, religious, psychology, African history and cosmology. Anything to do with Africa is what I love most.
