Writing & editorial work

I have wide experience of writing, editing and proof-reading for many publishers. In all cases, I take great pride in producing accurate copy, on time, and in accordance with any stylistic demands of the commission.

Over the years, I have contributed to numerous books, including the new RHS Encyclopedia of Perennials, The Cultural History of Plants, The European Garden Flora, The RHS A-Z Encyclopedia of Garden Plants, and several of the best-selling books on wild and garden plants by Roger Phillips and Martyn Rix.

I also write for various magazines and journals, including Curtis's Botanical Magazine, The Garden, The Plantsman, The New Plantsman and The Pteridologist.

Whilst I am completely at home in the more technical work, I particularly enjoy interpreting botany for a 'popular' readership.
