I’m an editor with about 30 years of experience working for regional newspapers in Queensland, Australia. I also write novels in my spare time — whatever time that may be — and escape with my fantasy characters into wondrous worlds. I created this page to give other writers tips on English usage, including typical mistakes that writers make and what constitutes good grammar and construction in a changing world. If you need an expert eye to go over your written work, I offer a proofreading and editing service.
