Lisa John

I am an experienced copy-editor, proofreader and project manager, with in-house experience at HarperCollins, Octopus Books and New Holland UK and freelance experience for Watkins Publishing and Penguin/DK.

I specialise in illustrated and text-only reference titles, on subjects as diverse as cookery, gardening, craft, MBS, sport, exercise, health, parenting, pets, art reference & instruction.

I have over nine years’ experience of strategically planning and handling simultaneous projects with different deadlines. I am a confident project manager, copy-editor, proofreader and writer and have extremely high standards of spelling and grammar.
