I am Australian with Irish citizenship and moved to Ireland in 2013. After working as an English/ESL/History teacher for six years, I entered publishing in 1988. I worked as an in-house editor with education/academic publisher, Pergamon Press, and Senior Editor of the Harcourt Brace & World School Division. Since 1995, I have worked as a home-based freelance editor, with extended periods of in-house contract employment with John Wiley & Sons and the Queensland Studies Authority.
