I’ve been working as a freelance science editor since 2010. In that time I’ve edited or proofread over 100 different projects including books, journal articles and undergraduate-level course materials.

I’ve been book shopping again. The two books on the right tackle depression from a Christian perspective. My husband is keen for me to get counselling (a lot of the depression is to do with negative thought patterns going back to childhood and medication can only do so much for that), but I wanted to […]
