   Please read what a recent editing client has to say about my work.

   My 17th book, Hit and Run, has been published, after a long delay. Please have a look.

   Talented YA author Michael Thal has a list of the 5 best books he's reviewed in a year. For 2017, he has chosen two of my books: Guardian Angel as his favourite, and Anikó: The stranger who loved me as the second.

   Delighted to let you know, the LiFE Award: Literature for Environment now has its 41st recipient Sublime Planet, a book of poetry by Carolyn Howard-Johnson and Magdalena Ball. This is the 5th award in the last few months. Please support authors whose writing cherishes our little planet.

   Last year, I spent months on editing an excellent book on an economic philosophy that has the potential to save humanity from the global economic system: the "Sufficiency Economy Philosophy" of the just-deceased Thai king. The book's editors wrote a testimonial for my services.

   I am offering a service to authors whose books I have reviewed. See the details.
