Experience I have been involved in the publishing industry since the late 1970s, working on a very wide range of books and magazines as well as technical and educational documents. I now focus mainly on editing academic books and articles related to my research interests in applied and theoretical linguistics, writing, and education. I teach research and study skills to international students embarking on tertiary level courses in WA for part of the year, and teach writing, editing, and publishing to tertiary students at other times. I am a writer myself and am currently putting together a new book of short stories. I would be very pleased to help anyone putting together texts with a social sciences/education focus, or anyone who would like additional expert help wrestling their text into a publishable condition.
