I run my own business as a proofreader based in Moseley, Birmingham. Having worked for most of my life as a performing classical musician, I started proofreading music for a major publisher in London some 20 years ago and more recently I have branched out into proofreading text.

The types of text I have worked on include novels, academic work, PhD theses, memoirs and websites. In addition to these I offer proofreading and editing services for businesses, magazines, newspapers and students.

Although my specialist subject is music, I have a great interest in fiction, history, spirituality, psychology, philosophy, theatre, film, television, travel and cookery.

Ivor McGregor undertook the task of scrutinising the text on our website www.nerjahistorygroup.com. Not only did he correct various grammatical errors, he also made some very useful suggestions. He is very conscientious and thorough. I wouldn’t hesitate to use him again.Christina Sinclair – Co-ordinator, Nerja History Group
